From my poetry collection FLOWERS DO SPEAK.


Nothing happens in my heart.
Monotonous rain fills my path.
Am i a woman, a girl or something?
Setting mind cries i am nothing.

Nothing in my stillness moves.
Feelings, emotions all dead youths.
Am i sea, mountain or moon?
Oh a prisoned dead, happened so soon.

Nothing to think, mind a stranger.
Counting my tears my only pleasure.
Am i the love,the hate, the passion?
Breathing seems to be my only action.

Nothing feels will never cease.
Thoughtless words my chained disease.
Am i me,you or nobody?
Please someone love me to be somebody.

Please someone love me to be somebody…

The first stanza reminds me of a poem by the French poet Paul Verlaine --- the language of your poem is your own, but the sentiment is similar to his. I'll have to find Verlaine's poem; you might appreciate it!
