The Fall of me ...

Theres a pain that sleeps inside,
that sleeps just one eyed,
and awakens the moment you are near,
feels nothing is inside, but a fear.

Theres a pain that sleeps inside,
that never lets me feel that I am 'one',
that only crunches the soul,
soul screaming inside that I am none.

Theres a pain that sleeps inside,
that has frozen the blood of mine,
the veins feel like tunnels of sorrow,
and I am blue like someone poisoned my marrow.

Theres a pain that sleeps inside,
that always heightens the inner tide,
someone is always around,
and I am feeling caught, forever bound.

Theres a pain that sleeps inside,
that will never leave me kind,
and I wish I were a stone,
standing rock but never feeling alone.

Hey life, why did you open my eyes,
the pain that slept inside,
I loved it for the numbness that it gave,
the hits that I survived, feeling that I am brave.

The pain is no more inside,
and I am loving life,
but I doubt if I am better,
'coz something still makes me fetter.

O Lord, can you come and make it disappear,
make it disappear and we can stay !

ok so its a great work. i wonder whether how u sometimes are able to catch the real emotions especially in the lines "that sleeps just one eyed," and "soul screaming inside that I am none".
"Hey life, why did you open my eyes,". these are some lines i specially loved in this poem. BTW how much time did u put in writing it. I guess 3/4 of a day. If u took lesser than this, then boy, u r an awesome poet.
