The Pain - Poem by fadinginto oblivion

With a growing pain inside
I am standing alone on a precipice
A friend stood near me
And asked who made me so unhappy
How can I tell, you are the one
The one who afflicted me
How can I say I am hurt by your words?
How can I show that you had the power
To crumble my heart
Am I that fragile?
My lips just don’t seem to part
And he went away without an answer
And I am lonely again.

A stranger stood near me
He asked why I was so unhappy
How can I tell a stranger?
How can I trust him with my emotions?
What if he laughs at me?
What if he finds my reasons trivial?
Can he weigh the heaviness in my heart?
My lips just don’t seem to part
And he too went away without an answer
And I am lonely again

They all came and went away
Strangers and friends and enemies
Without their answers
I kept silent all throughout
I could not confide in friends.
Couldn’t bring myself to trust the strangers
The enemies would take pleasure in my pain
For who can understand it better than me?
Neither friends nor enemies nor strangers
Can feel it or ease it
Because the pain is mine
It is within me and growing inside me.

I no longer stand on the precipice
I am no longer lonely
But moving freely
Amongst those friends, enemies and strangers
with a smile on my face
and the pain in my heart
Which I will preserve till the end.
this pain i will keep as a souvenir
From those whom i can call
either friends or enemies or strangers.
