An Egg heart

As a sensitive personality I hold….
I tend to be easily hurt 
I feel the deep pain a lot 
When the close one hurt’s me most 
Deep sadness and very cold 
I tend to wet my eyes 
Flu I suddenly develop 
Migraine becomes the ruler of my head 
When no one is bothered to watch 
I cry loud but still no one hears my voice 
Searching for that big hug 
That once was given to me, without begging when I was a child 
But wherever I glance now, all the doors are closed 
Too say sad to say even windows are shut

It’s tiring to be blamed and be proved wrong every time
It's boring to say sorry when you are not suppose to

I need to take a deep breath
Before I make a wish 

Where can I find a lovely world? 
Which I would completely fit in

Tired of cleaning the floor which everyday get's dust 
only when they need me they wear their innocent masks
And later say those are little things
She herself is making it look big

Everyday I forgive but until when
How sad I tend to be, it’s hard to explain 
when someone hurts my heart it feels as if a needle is inserted

No matter how hard I try to forget and not to cry,
It is the more cry……

    i usually get impatient with long poems with the exception of myself (of course), but your's captured my interest on the first line, because what you wrote is so true. -linda
