Screaming out loud!

August 4, 2008

Look at me - Love


i dreamed i was in the park
sitting on the bench
watching the birds
and reading the book

sound of laughter
suddenly broke the silence
and filled the air
sitting up straight, i looked out

one look is all it took
one look that left me speechless,
brought me back to senses
and woke me up from this dream

i sat there
waiting for a miracle
to drag me out
from the darkness

i sat there
in the darkness
to save me from the old days
to find the real me amongst the chaos

never opened myself this way
all these words i don’t just say
how can you just look at me
and not hear what my heart is screaming out loud?

there are multiple meanings to this.

    never care for what they do…
    never care for what they say…

    if you have to scream out loud and expect the person to hear it, then there’s something missing in the way you project yourself. OR you shouldn’t expect at all

    just my 2 cents 🙂

    you think a lot. def you do 😀
    yeah that song has got a lot of different lines, but i picked out only the ones that suited for this poem 🙂

    that does not mean, there is something missing/wrong in my projection.

    as we once discussed, diff ppl, diff way of looking at things 😉

    But, thank you for dropping by 🙂

    ahuh!! formalities… humphh!!

    see i didnt say you as in YOU are projecting yourself wrong… all i meant was if there’s a point where you have to scream out and still nobody hears you out, then its prob’ly the way you are screaming, as in, the way you’re showing up yourself.

    It wasnt intended to be telling you something directly, of coz! 🙂

    anyway, its def true – diff ppl and diff perspectives! 😉

    yeah, i understood you is not actually me 🙂 and also about the projection.

    there are times when you dont have to actually shout it out to get the “word” out 🙂
