I'M Up Tonight.... Can'T Even Sleep - Poem by Saurabh Som

I'm up tonight.... can't even sleep
The Pain's too big for me...
May be you are..... you are in deep
Pain.... or in sleep may be

You want me to forget
Everything you said
You want me to start anew
But, tell me how
Can I ever forget
My life, my laugh and you?

My blood, still red, although thicker..., rushing to and fro
This lost little heart is scared to death not knowing where to go
Each droplet of blood, screaming like hell
Ringing your name in my veins like a bell
They don’t want to let you go...

I'm up tonight.... can't even sleep
The Pain is nibbling inside
May be you are..... you are asleep
Or your eyes are open.....wide?

You want me to forget
Everything you said
And move along with the tide
You want me to break... break the promise
That I won’t leave your side...

My blood, still red, although thicker, flowing now slow
My grief, my pain makes me weaker, and my tears glow
Each tear dropp now, your name they spell
Writes my sorrow, as I failed
Why did you have to go?
