When I’m Hurt

When I’m hurt. . .
I’m..hot. . .
I’m lost…
In thoughts…
Every hair strand on my body gets dreadlocked…
My brain like two threads deadlocked…
The realities leaves me shell-shocked. . .

When I’m hurt, I dont cry. . .
I wear a big smile with mediterranean water dripping from my eyes
Thats how I feel. . .thats the price
I pay when you say the truth by telling me lies

When I’m hurt is when I love
And it seems to you a stone-cold bluff
When will my best ever be enough
Cos pleasing you seems pretty tough. . .

When I’m hurt. . .

Sadness clouds my thoughts cos of you…
And rains into my existence a heartful avarar of you
Priceless as the unobtaniumon Pandora, no lie..its true
Oh gosh.. .where is mother “Eywa“*…I desire to be one of you. .

When I’m hurt…

I struggle between the strong wave and tide of my tears
Searching for how best to express my fears
While you busy playing tiers*
At this point your laughter sounds so fierce. .

When I’m hurt..

I know its a test
Cos I still keep treasures in my chest
If an eagle makes Kehlsteinhaus* its nest
Then surely, in Allah will my heart will find rest

unobtanium:  precious mineral found in Pandoria talked about in the movie Avatar
Pandora:  A  lush, Earth-like moon with an atmosphere poisonous to humans in the Alpha Centauri star system (Avatar movie)
Eywa:  The mother goddess worshiped by the Navis (Avatar Movie)
Tiers: or  Ultra Checkers, is a complex variant of checkers that allows players to upgrade their pieces beyond kings
Kehlsteinhaus : in English-speaking countries also known as the Eagle’s Nest

    Mixed feelings and emotions
    Our cry in the closet and happy face in the sun is just the kinda battle between “giving up” and “standing tall”
    Obviously from the heart! *thumbs up*
