That Lonely Girl - Poem by Reihaneh Jalalian

Somewhere 'neath the blue sky
But a little above the deep
Somewhere in this little universe
My ears can hear something
Yes my ears can hear a voice

Stranger than every familiar thing
Better than that butterfly injured wing
Nicer than that crying droplet
More beautiful than my old love song
Louder than the firefly whisper
Quieter than the moon cry

My eyes are searching that voice
May be someone is shouting
No, that’s a cry

Someone in this world is crying
Someone is weeping
But no one can hear
No one can see

People don’t hear
People don’t see
People are not people
People inhale love
But exhale nothing
People's hearts are full of nothing

Love is dead in their hearts
Love is where, the stars with weepy eyes are
Love is where, whenever you look down you see nothing but red roses
Love is where, the sky is simply blue and the rainbow's smile has seven colors
Love is in that lonely girl's heart

A lonely girl nigh the pond in rain

Yes it rains
Yes it rains to wash only her eyes
Yes it rains to cover people's colorless hearts
Yes it rains, cause after that, when the rainbow comes
People will know black is not the only color

I can think
I can feel
I can hear
I can understand
I can love

She is still crying

She is crying to prove that people are harder than meteor
But softer than nothing
No feeling
No understanding
She is crying

    Truly written from the heart and no one deserves to feel this way, but people still do. i am one of the many people. this world just keeps getting worse no matter how hard you try to change it. i just wish that there werent so many people that have to deal with all of these feelings of pain, deception, and other things of the sort. very nice job on writing this and i hope to see more.
    p.s. the only thing that i would do if i were you is maybe reread your poems before posting them to check for spelling or word errors to make sure that you get your meaning out, but great job and i hope to read more.

    Oh girl, don't be desponded.The sun, the moon, the earth and all planets are so lonely.The stars are too lonely.Lonely are the people whom we see close from afar as we see the clusterd stars.Yet, everyone is very important in their lonliness.
