How long?  

It is a silent night again. I can only hear the sighs from myself.
How long have I been like this? I donít know.
Lying alone on my soft bed, embracing my favourite pillow.
Looking up to the ceiling, wishing it is a sky full of stars.
I get up and stretch a bit, nothing to inspire me so to speak.
How long have I been like this? I donít know.

For others, night is the time to relax, to free oneself from the dayís flight.
For me, I donít know cause I want to search something more.
At night I want to feel vibrant, endowed with my inner self.
Time to express my deepest feelings, my hidden thoughts .
How long have I been like this? I donít know.

In my head words are rioting to define myself with clarity.
And I donít know where and how to begin.
I grabbed a pen, flipped it a few times.
Stroke a paper, nothingís done.
Crumple it then let it fly.
Iíll start again but nothingís done.
How long have I been like this? I donít know.

Then I tried to close my eyes and let myself drift into the midnight sky.
Surprised cause words fell into places.
And suddenly I leap, reach for a pen, pieces of paper.
And with a life itself my hand engraved my inmost emotions
I kept on writing like nothing to stop
How long have I been like this? I donít know. Registered & Protected

Very wonderful piece of work. And plus I love the title and of course what I love the most is your poem. Sometime I felt the same way as you like how long have I been like this? Anyway this a very well written piece of work. Well done!
