My bloody heart!

Some things will die with me,
The world will never know,
The cross that I bear,
The pain that I rear,
I cover it under the garb of silence

Some times I wonder,
How many are there like me,
Who silently suffer?

You were playing a game,
And I was naïve,
I was in the company of vice,
But then I did not realize
Until the truth came out,
By then it was too late

Who to blame?
It was you
My bloody heart!

The journey was hard,
From heart to hurt to hatred,
From being strangers to becoming friends to turning foes,
Few lessons I learned,
Few resolutions I made,
Some scars remain unhealed,
I guess,
Death will liberate me,
From all these voices inside me,
While I let you go,
And let go myself!

Strange I feel about human psyche,
This bloody heart still yearns,
For those who don't care
Write verses on
Those who like shadows,
Remained when the sun shone,
And disappeared when it got dark

In prosperity,
There were many to talk,
In adversity,
There are any to walk

My bloody heart,
Feels like grabbing
And tossing you out!

    Ah it seems a long grim road some days my friend, There comes a time when all weary men must shuck off their chains and unshackle themselves from their guilt. Misery will only add to your burden, it will burn like acid and still not cut through your chains. Only you can do that. You have begum through posting this poem, Listen........ Can you hear your words quietly cutting through? Once your chains have gone, Only helping others will ever do. (Report) Reply
