Here I'M Alone - Poem by Tiku akp

I don’t know why I like to talk with you
In your language
Why I can’t withdraw my fingers from the keys
Till I finished the page

Why do I always fall prey to your childlike charm
And believe your words
When I see you staring at me from inside the glass
My thoughts collapse as a tower of cards

The scratch you left on the surface of my heart
Has grown wide to touch the mind
Your lies and betrayal still haunt me like ghosts
Though much I try to leave them behind

Your questions have no answers with me
And you ask them so often
I tried and failed to come out from web of love
That around me you have spun

Know I well I won’t ever get you, and your love
Is not in my fate
You better find love with someone who stays near you
Before it would be too late

    Why I can’t withdraw my fingers from the keys..........i was thinking keys? house or car keys? ? then it dawned on me: computer keyboard keys i guess.

    and When I see you staring at me from inside the glass ........glass is monitor glass? ? at first i thought you might be in love with a lizard in a terrarium!

    favorite lines (stanza) :

    The scratch you left on the surface of my heart
    Has grown wide to touch the mind
    Your lies and betrayal still haunt me like ghosts
    Though much I try to leave them behind ............you think of such golden lines as you dig ore from mines? ?

    too late for whom, i wonder.

    i don't care much for 'love' poems, but this one goes to MyPoemList.

    Enjoyed reading this poem. It not only reflects the love of two young hearts but brings about their innocent doubts and questions, too. It also makes provision for flexibility in the relationships. Very well articulated poem. Thank a lot.

    Great poem about loving someone who does not love you back. I like that the poem ended with a suggestion for others to avoid similar situations. (Report) Reply

    Straight writing with some dots regarding the cyber relation. Confession, suggestion and ultimately disillusioned escape from the board well illustrated materially. Thanks. (Report) Reply
