"No easy way to be free" - The Who


Don't you know that all I want is to be with you?
I scream, but nobody can save me anymore.
Do you hear me when I cry out for you?
With each cry, my soul is torn open.
But nothing spills out,
for it was already empty,
just like your heart.
I can't do this any longer.
Do I freeze, or am I burning?
I must be burning,
just like a heretic
Or maybe I freeze in the ice
from your heart.
Can't you see me, writhing in agony?
My dreams will soon be distorted
because I am trapped in my tiny glass world.


The author's comments:
Actually, this started as a rhyming poem in German (my third language), which I made up in the car. The original rhyme scheme was a simple AABB etc., but none of it rhymes in english. I still thought it would be interesting.

That's cool, I never would have thought of it that way.

I said, "tiny glass world" because glass is very fragile, and when you look through curved glass, everything is distorted but you can still see through it. "Tiny" because it relates back to the underlying theme of a claustrophobic, unhealthy relationship.

It's really good poem, in German and English. But I'm interested as to why you said "my tiny glass world" ?
