we were distanced

by the closeness between us

we were unhappy

for happiness that didn’t belong to us

we were crying from the inside

presenting fake smiles to the world

we drowned in pain

when we tried to dive into each other

we were filled, bubbled by the hollow

too many layers between us, parting our hearts

still all this while, never were we permitted

the unbearable pressure of the society

forcing our frames, to remain together

to do nothing but to put a fake face

behind which

we were to shed tears countless

embarrassing our happiness

  1. Is it compliment then receiving it gracefully ?
    One should, because words have limitations but emotions are infinite. How come words can express them . You need to be intuitive to feel them…

    No doubt you are an artist, you don’t write rather craft them..
