zombie

Since some asked me for an explanations to my previous poem. Even though I like to keep it free for interpretation, I decided maybe I can write a background for this 1.
The night that I wrote this, I was feeling rather hopeless and full of despair.Nothing was going as I wanted. I, personally, believe that hope makes the world go round and life can flip 180, if you just have the hope. But in that moment, I just wrote down what I felt and this is what came out of it. I haven't read it again because I might change the ending to a happier one, since Im myself again. But for the first time, I realise what despair must really feel like :)

Breathing. Walking.Talking.Laughing.
Numb. Can feel nothing. Living Zombie.
Each breath is a new breath.
No yesterday no tomorrow.
No past no future.
No hope.
Live each day as it comes.
That’s what I’m doing.
But then why does it feel so numb?
Bleed I do but no pain.
Cuts so deep that they go through.
But no pain.
Human, I’m no more.
Breathing. Walking.Talking.Laughing.
Numb. Can feel nothing. Living Zombie
People talk all around. I do hear.
But understand nothing.
Just words. No meaning.
Like life.
Just events. One after the day.

Someone told me...That life is just going to be the same. Every passing day. Every night..its going to bring you more grief. Its not going to be better. Never. Ever. No matter how much you dislike it..It wont help. But the day you realize this that its not going to be better and prolly worse. That day will be the best day of your life. The ordinary meal will taste something surreal. Something youve never experienced before. I really donno if its true. But then I cant see no wrong in this :P

And as far as your poetry is concerned..I mean as a critic...Its Flawless :P

Bleed I do but no pain.

I needn't say more.

Cheers!

Seems to be in a state of frustration !! Hope your day will come...and even i have encountered those days...but I am not a poet to express like you did... :-)

Hope to see a poem with praising moments !
