Teenage emotions

In these strange days, I’ve got a fear
That I’m am not by myself, complete
My heart says something’s lacking here
You are by yourself but incomplete

Just like the stories I’ve been told
I feel lonely and like I can’t go on
And like I badly need a hand to hold
And a comfy shoulder to cry on

It’s funny how, in teenage years
We feel lonely even amongst a hundred guys
As pearls fall down as tears,
It feels like no one is to me, being nice

But think me not like the vain multitude
Because I know you know and see the pain
And you know I try to get to you (God)
You are closer to me than my jugular vein!

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
