Do You Ever? – A Poem


Do you ever sit there and feel like crying,

As the world moves on, but inside you’re dying,

And the pain holds you there, and you cannot move on

As the emptiness stays long after you’ve gone.

 

Do you ever sit there and wonder why

As time moves forward and passes you by

You’re left behind, like a ghost from the past

And people look through you like you’re made of glass.

 

Do you ever sit there and think to yourself

That often the best place would be high on a shelf

Out of the way and out of the picture

Avoiding the critics and all of the stricture

 

Do you ever sit there and feel like crying,

And your chest feels so heavy from breathing and sighing

Then realise it’s temporary, and one day it will pass

And you will move forward and break through that glass.
