Closer Than You Think - Poem by Lubna Hazeem

Rain is pouring over my shed
Doubts are whispering in my head
I have no idea what on earth i just said
Or why you should listen to such rubbish

And i, i know you know who i am
A person who says she can but she can't
And now she stares at her fallen demands
The world is made of lies and compliments

And she knows, it brings her to tears
It makes her wish she wasn't so sincere
And if there's any left who suffer from such fears
Please let me know that they are still around here

And he says, they are
Look at night-time's stars
Hundreds, thousands, millions, billions shimmering far
But they're closer than you think, closer than you think

And i am closer than you think, my dear
I am closer than you think, closer than you think

You do and you don't
And you fail everyone
But you can't fail this heart
We were never meant to be apart

There are no lines
Between you and i
In this abundant space
Love is our only place

And it's closer than you think, closer than you think
Believe me, i can see you and you're in the middle of it

Pain, pain's now coming
And you keep on running
But you know it's there
That's why your eyes are never dry
Your eyes were never meant to be dry

And that's why im closer than you think
That's why im always closer than you think

And she blinks, then she opens her eyes
And she blinks, then she looks at the sky
The sun's now brighter than the city lights
And the things that overshadowed for nights

And it's closer than you think
Love is closer than you think
I am closer than you think now

    nice lines... if a bit long....
    effective and alluring....the double emphasis is very charming and musical

    cheers
