21. Longing

I am tired,
tired of waking up to this feeling,
this feeling of longing,
longing for something I can’t understand.
It transforms from that dull pain,
I ignored easily
to this throbbing ache in my heart
that can’t be buried deep within the mind.
Longing for some unknown thing.
Its as if there is a parasite living in me,
drinking blood from my heart.
And now it has grown in full length.
Whom should I tell,
whom should I seek counsel?
I am scared to speak,
to tell people.
But what is it that I long for?
Don’t I have everything already?
Yes, I do.
Maybe it will pass if I sleep more,
let me lie down dear.
