Don’t Tell Me You Know How I Feel

Don’t tell me you get what I feel

You always doubt it being real

For you have never felt this quiet storm inside

The one that rages to make me hide

You detract the grief from my existence

You mistake my presence for my absence

You make me feel invisble

And then magically share views to make me seen

The fact that you have never felt what I feel

You have never heard my breaking soul

So now don’t pretend that you know

And undermine it by I saying I am lazy

You go behind me and say

These tears are just for attention

But why question this if you never,

Question the destruction after a tsunami?

So don’t tell me you know how I feel

‘Cause you’ll never realize

The monster’s laughter in my head,

Is how real


I had written this poem for Panna’s magazine- The Lost Letters, before. Hope you like it!

  1. But why question this if you never,
    Question the destruction after a tsunami?
    So don’t tell me you know how I feel
    ‘Cause you’ll never realize
    The monster’s laughter in my head,
    Is how real

    I got chills this is an AMAZING poem
