Unfilled and unspoken desires
That gave birth to restlessness
The wait that never seems to end.
The cries and shouts unheard
The heart that lays battered and broken,
Is what lays behind the walls.
Where hope and despair kept playing hide and seek.
Amidst the tears and sobs
The heart still throbs
For the one who robbed it once
Never got it back
There's void now
All hollow and black.
From dusk till dawn
My eyes all set on the door.
The monotony has now become an addiction
Is what happens behind the walls.
With every footfall
I rise and run at the door,
But all in vain.
What is now left is hurt and pain
There seems no signs when we meet again.
But still I keep my spirits up
and do not give up
For this seems only the possible way to live up.
That's how I survive behind the walls.
