The echo inside

I wished to make it through and figure everything in my life out.

I wished for the day when the pain will go away, but does it ever go away ?

Or are we all just distracted by the noise of life ?

I slept and dreamt about my happy life next to you, then slept the other night and felt the pain you left inside all over again.

I opened my eyes hoping to feel, hoping to jump of happiness out of my bed, but all is left inside is emptiness.

Scream inside and all you will hear is echo, hey you, you, you…. Anybody there, there, there !

Who knows! Maybe there’s something left inside this hollow heart, a small glimpse of kindness or a little 5 years old kid waiting for her toy, candies or warm hugs.

I lit the candle in my room for it to burn as I burn, for it to light the space the way it didn’t for a long time ago, for it to help me smell a light scent of hope and peace.

Then a tear fell from my eyes, one small tear for everything that was left behind, for the pain I once knew, and for the person I once was.

Cry little baby cry, it’s been a while, cry and wash away what is left of the sorrow inside.
