The Someone


Rushing through my cheeks like a waterfall,
Beware of the night when tears fall.

Beware, for they won't let me sleep,
All through the night I'll have to weep.

Cry silently, try to wake no one up,
Who cares? because I'm the only one up,

To fight for all and lose for none,
In tormenting me life has great fun.

In an attempt to make others' life glitter,
I dive for pearls and for life splutter.

But behind the scenes there is someone who is waiting for a cue,
And she, is sure to come to my rescue.

Even when I'm utterly scared,
She comes to make sure that I am spared.

Even if she is sad her cheerful chatter knows no end,
Yes, she was, is and will be my bestest friend.

    Very Beautiful poem.
    I dive for Pearls
    To glitter others life...
    Though no one cares for me
    Whatever I do it for anyone.
    But there is someone who is behind the scene
    Watching me with care
    I am so sure about her
    That she will surely come to rescue me.
    Ending of the poem is powerful with positive words..

    poetry is the flow from the soul to song
    But behind the scenes there is someone who is waiting for a cue,
    And she, is sure to come to my rescue.
