You Don't Know  

You don't know what it's like to be lonely
Even when you're surrounded by crowds
You don't know what it's like to be empty
With your mind in the midst of the clouds

You don't know what it's like to be shattered
By the dreams that have faded to dust
Where you don't shed a tear, but you're crying
But you just carry on, cos you must

Like your whole body quivers and trembles
But you don't seem that different at all
You just dance as you do to fit in here
Even though it's a long way to fall

You don't know what it's like to be grounded
When the rest of the world's flying high
With a feeling you're no longer needed
So you simply just try to get by

Carrying on for the reasons
That amount to the cost of this life
With a light in the sky that has darkness
You could cut through the air with a knife

You don't know where a human must travel
Where they tread, where they grieve, where they lay
The battles they faced were a struggle
But results weren't a lucid display

You don't know what it's like to be here now
Clinging on fervently, while we can
The measure of fight in the battle
A strong heart might well understand

That we are the bruised, and the wounded
Perhaps we are never quite free
But we're feelings. emotions, the real side of life
Can you know what it's like to be me?

Painfully beautiful
A sad poem but also very beautiful as it expresses a painful struggle within that isn't very visible on the surface. The persona describes many painful situations of personal suffering that are almost invisible to everyone else but at the same time they keep on struggling. I enjoyed this poem. It is very positive though it speaks of pain. Thanks for sharing.

A really perfect piece, rhyming, rhythm and content with every stanza perfect. The contents, I hope, do not apply to you, if it does then you have my full support and sympathy. I love the first line of every stanza, You don't know what it's like. One of the best poems on here that I have read for a long time. Well done and keep them coming. SL take care. Rod.

I feel that I too am a...
...strong heart, struggling to cope with the pain of wishing and hoping and knowing there is no gain....but as they say life must go on and live in the embrace of the memories we dare to hold.
