    I could feel something,
    Not a void like other days,
    Sitting on the wet grass,
    Gazing at the stars,
    I could feel something.
    A longing to hold myself,
    Desperate to shout,
    But something held me back,
    Was I lazy to speak up ?
    I was tired,
    I could feel something,
    Not a void like other days,
    When I’m alone in crowd,
    When I’m deaf amidst a chaos around,
    I feel a void, all empty there,
    Someone keeps screaming inside,
    Am I lazy to hear ?
    I am tired,
    But this is common,
    I could feel something else today,
    Something I was craving to tell you,
    Not a void like other days,
    Today,
    I could feel the heaviness and not the emptiness,
    Maybe the heaviness of the emptiness.
    Agonized I was to take it out,
    I wondered how to do it,
    Never had I done that before?
    I did.
    But this time, it was something else.
    This time I couldn’t cry,
    Was I lazy to ?
    I was tired.
    I couldn’t cry, but wanted to.
    I could feel something,
    Not a void like other days,
    So I chose not to ignore the scream this time,
    Tired,
    I tried
    Only to hear my cry to cry.
