And Yet You Just Watch

Do you remember, who I am?
I sway in this emptiness
floating in the void
my heart is broken and hollow
and yet you just watch

You filled my life with love and care once
I am lone in my sorrows
weeping at my loss
and yet you just watch

As the waves of pains drag me down
I drop helpless in the hands of merciless time
struggle to stand the strokes of hardships
longing for your compassion which was once mine
and yet you just watch

My life is an empty road with no path leading anywhere
I wonder in vague where are you?
leaving me face the loss alone,
crushing my dreams with harsh stones,
and yet you just watch

I am drowning day by day in the sea of loneliness
trying to breathe out of the agony of your ignorance
grabbing to the ruins which are remaining
and yet you just watch

You have become my weakness, emptying me from every side
my mere regret is to end this life for someone like you
who left me crying and drowning forever
and yet you just watch

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
