Theme: Introspection

An Alien

I am alien to myself,
To every new tide of desire,
Longing, love and dream.
I am alien to my bleeding heart,
Its throbbing & agonizing pain.
Striding along the cage,
Why don't I feel happy?
Why it feels lonely in crowd?
Why it weeps when caressed?
Why it wants to break down?
Why it becomes so savage?
No answer comes.
I am trapped in the mire.
Only one voice echoes
'You would never know,
Because you are alien
An alien to yourself'
