Feelings were once a part of my life
and loads of feelings I had
dreams of being a mother and a wife
soon became my past.
I used to feel others’ pain
and tears would fall from my eyes
but then I thought I have no gain
so I stopped all of my cries.
Then soon enough I found out
that happiness isn’t forever
so I threw away happiness too
and hoped it would come never.
Sadly, though, all feelings left
and I was in the dark
not feeling pain nor happiness
no excitement, not a spark.
Smiles would crack my lips at times
and tears would run down my face
yet deep inside I surely know
in my heart, feelings have no place.
