You Make Me Feel Alive


I was there

between people running from pillar to post,

lost in useless thoughts...

I felt like I was walking on a deserted road,


I knew nobody would hear me even if I scream

even if I whisper...

For all I felt was everything falling apart

and falling behind.

With no emotion,

I only felt a tinge a pain,

a pain to tell me that I was alive..

I kept wandering around,

among people like I was invisible.

I woke up suddenly,

feeling restless with my heartbeat running fast.

Surely, dreams are the only thing that make me feel alive,

alive on my own...
