STAY WITH ME.
Stay with me tonight.
For the stars are dazzling bright
And the moon is in its loony height,
Stay with me,
for there is a blinding light.
My heart beats in a way strange
Throbbing hard to break loose.
For it is not the dark I fear
But it is the light that shears.
hiding the dark within its folds.
As not acclimatized to un reined joy
I fear I may stumble and drown
in the music of the night,
that tugs at the ascetic core.
Arousing a tempest under my skin
Wavering my thoughts to overflow all limits.
With the cool wind playing through my locks,
wafting musk tickling sensuous senses,
the heart, accustomed to fraught silence,
and mind, tamed to respect boundaries,
threaten to betray, to taste this life,
to get swept in the ephemeral ecstasy,
burying the conscience under piles of allures.
It is then that exhilarated senses tend to slide,
sinking in the delusion and grandiose all around,
giving the devil reasons to smile,
tempted to taste the forbidden.
O faith don’t leave my side,
Tonight and every night.
