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...
