I woke up from a dream,
From a very bad dream.
There, I saw myself;
A broken side of myself.
I ran so fast,
But my breath couldn’t last.
I shouted names,
That my weary heart exclaims.
I phoned someone at home,
Few more hours before gloam.
But no one seems to hear,
All of these seem unclear.
I ran from side to side,
I hopped on a bike and ride.
But I couldn’t see someone,
I could hear no one.
I felt my eyes were drenched in tears,
This is one of my childhood fears.
I don’t even want to call it my own,
‘Coz I don’t want to be alone.
I was trembling so hard,
In this fear, I was forever barred.
I am dreadfully scared,
In this fear, I will forever be entangled.
“Good Lord, do I only exist in dreams?”,
My weary, troubled mind screams.
“And if I only exist there,
Am I a daydream or a nightmare?”
I sat down at the edge of the sidewalk,
Bowed down my head, to God, I talk.
I ask for this emptiness to be filled,
And this nightmare to disappear.
Should’ve forgiven myself for hurting,
And let go all the pain I am still holding.
If given a chance again to wake up,
I will let loose all the burden of this break-up.
Should be satisfied without your presence,
And I should be happy with your absence.
Even if I wake up, I am still alone,
At least, I will be happily alone.
