Virtual World Poem by Deep Mukherjee

Virtual World

Rating: 4.5

It's 10 past 5
And the Sun hiding behind the clouds;
I should be deep in sleep
But here I'm with lighting flames;
The world's craving for light
And I know I'm the saving grace;
I'm not an angel
But i have the power to heal;
Let the Sun take a rest
Burning inside from time immemorial;
My heart melting like wax
My world of dreams turns into smoke;
It was 10 past 5 once
I saw the first glimpse of Sunlight;
It was 10 past 5 once
When the world took you away from me;
It's 10 past 5 again
How could I afford to sleep?
How could I afford to dream?
How could I even afford to smile?
I'm destined to burn
The world seeks relief from my pain;
Let the Sun take a rest
Untill the birds start chirping again;
The gentle breeze rustles through
And I slowly enter the world unknown;
A world of dreams it seems to me
When others enter the familiar zone;
It was 10 past 5
And I was inside a world within me;
A world mere non-existent to you
But in my world the definition of reality! ! ! ! !

Sir; a candle can't burn indefinitely; likewise i can't be in this dream desired world indefinitely; therefore i am happy to burn here; somewhere i am solicited that people seeks light from my light; it's a pain of another type; a pain i cherish.......and i'm burning with flames of nostalgia............

Confucius said: it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. if it is used in Promethean n philanthropic sense the word lighting is preferable, i think...

This poem is awful. It makes literally no sense. Do you even know how to construct grammatically correct sentences? From time immemorial? The six exclamation marks at the end aren't really necessary either. GET GOOD PLEASE.
