A piercing pain

passed across my heart,

when a dream broke away

and made its way to the vault.

 

Self consolation failed,

with tearless eyes I wailed;

for all around presume tears

as  symbol of weak not brave.

 

Recovery would be long, I know

but to whom shall I pour my heart.

In this selfish world

is anybody anything gonna do?

 

For days together

has it lingered inside me,

behind a normal face others see,

lies a painful wound…..

 

It bleeds all the time

reflecting pain in my eyes,

but no one bothers to see

my hurt eyes…..

 

Silent sighs, invisible tears,

are still hidden here;

that sharp pain I still bear

please tell me, to leave it where………

    Beautiful poem
    Liked very much; more so this pondering in a natural way
    The way you have poured it in the poem is the best way
    to get over your pain,forget it and get it out of your way
    I can definitely say so, for this too to forgive such pain is my way

    Cathy,
    some nice images here conveying the sense of pain, loss and bewilderment. The poems seems to grow on me with each read,

    “when a dream broke away”
    “For days together
    has it lingered inside me,”
    “that sharp pain I still bear
    please tell me, to leave it where…”
    Verse 3, line 2 – delete “to” at the end of the line
