Let me Lean on You

Updated on June 2, 2011


I do appreciate the silence within my mind

LET ME LEAN ON YOU


I bite my lip, silence the turbulence and fake a smile

A fake gesture can deceive the world for a short while

Torture battering my crowded head all day long

Weak from the core, yet pretending to be strong

And you say I need you to survive to hold on

[never opening up]


Yet I don’t tell the world about the pain and torment

For I appreciate my solitude, my silence, my moment

Yet the cup of endurance at some point will reach its peak

So if I drown in my tears at some point don’t force me to speak


I do value the clashes with my head, yet don’t interfere

Don’t tell me what to do, to say, how to conquer the fear

Can’t you just lend me your shoulder, your presence?

Can you just not trespass over that eternal fence?

That I have woven around my heart as a shield

Can’t you just wait for me with no word no plead

In the end I am broken, born and raised all alone

Toughened up by life taught to face the pain all my own

So don’t lead the way for I may not follow

Just go along with the current though the water is shallow


Just give me your shoulder, your warmth your understanding

Don’t watch me from past the world mocking nor commenting

And don’t feel sorry for me, for the pain has turned into a kin

Yet one word out of the way can crash my world of sin


Just be there with me, with your every heart and soul

You don’t need to plunge your pointing finger into the hole

Created by the pain that life claims its own

Just let me lean on you, no need to share the stone

No need to share the boulder for I know it will break us both

No need to be my anchor, I won’t trick you into making such an oath

Just hold my hand when it trembles, let me lean on you

Tell me everything about the world with words so few

Do you know how trapped I am, please don’t leave me now

And in case I fall to one knee due to the pain or I bow

Just watch me dance with the shadow within my mind

Yet, linger next to me, be the light that I can find



Cloaked in life and in death, yet just hold me tight

You don’t need to worry about saying what is right

Just sooth my pain with your touch

That is all what I ask from you, Not much

Just let me lean on you, be my shoulder

While I’m drafted to carry this eternal boulder

Drafted to strive

In this chaotic world we call life

      Freya, well the poem was simply amazing :D and yes sometimes support is all we need. Honestly speaking i have been getting support more from you and our fellow hubbers mroe than from the people i meet :D maybe unconditional love is hard to ask from most people, for me understanding would just do it.

      Well i think tamashii is way gone, but there is this wild cat that we call Kira which had a litter near by. The kitten keeps coming to our garden to play and eat. She has long grey fur with brownish eyes and striped with black :D so cute. I decided to name her tiny because she is so kawaii [cute in japanese] also the male cat [ash] doesn't seem to mind her prescence :D he sometimes crushes for her the bones into tiny pieces for her to eat :D although tiny's mom (kira#2) doesnt let us touch her, i was the first to play with tiny (rub her belly carry her around, she even ate from my hand :D btw she is a wild cat :D so im glad she reminds me of tamashii :D two days ago i was playing with my bro's phone and so that he compiled an entire album with pics of tamashii and my heart sank. God i so miss that cat, he was simply different in every single aspect. Totally love him, and ill try to upload more pictures for him. Also after my exams i will write a poem in his memory :D

      In deed, all what we need is blessing from Allah and guidance. May we always find ourselves on the right path.

      The poem I wrote in the comment capsule always a new one. And you, is one, from only several people who always able to moved me with your beautiful piece of work.

      I give you a hug, my dear, because I need it too. A hug from my dear sister which I really grateful to have. You are right, sometimes not many words is needed to calm a heart but simply an acceptance and unconditional love. ^^

      Torty still whinning because she wants wet food everytime. She against dry food and become thinner day after day. Unless she eat a little bit now. That brat! So smart in making me worry. And how's your Cats?

      It's alright, dear, if you are busy. We can always share poems in here. I am very busy too in trying to make my path become clear from unworthy obstacles. Insha Allah, Allah will always give the best guidance and great blessing to us so all of us will be able to live in the right path always.

      I zip my mouth and open my arms

      Will it give you enough of warm?

      I won't ask you to be calm

      Just sit there with you and write my pleadge to my own palm

      Soon we will see the dawn

      Soon...

      Wrap that jacket tightly on your shoulder, dear

      It's still too cold now...

      Nikki :D thanks for stopping by, and for once i think this poem is really a reflection of what i was feeling back then. Maybe that's why it feels too realistic because the emotions that accompanied writing it were tangible and real :D glad you liked the poem :D

      And as always thank you for your positive feedback it means a lot btw how have you been?

      amazing Uriel! I loved this. Certain lines really stood out "Just let me lean on you, no need to share the stone

      No need to share the boulder for I know it will break us both

      No need to be my anchor, I won’t trick you into making such an oath"

      "Yet I don’t tell the world about the pain and torment

      For I appreciate my solitude, my silence, my moment"

      I really loved this!
