The sand is whipping round my face
But inside it's my heart that aches

 I have been forced to marry you
And I must always be true

You might love me, deep inside 
But my true feelings I must hide

For when it's time for me to pray
I pray and pray for better days

Oh sweet Allah, hear my plea!
Let some joy come back to me

My life is colorless and bland
Like the color of desert sand

The sand is whipping round my face
And now my heart no longer aches.

    Are you a Muslim Ashley? I loved this stanza "my life is colorless and bland/like the color of desert sand" that by itself is a beautiful stanza. I have to check out some of your other poems. Feel free to check my poems out...
