The Fire Inside

The Fire Inside

A Poem by Aswin R Prasad
"

When you miss someone and you can't do anything about it.

"
THE FIRE INSIDE

[Verse 1]

Meeting you was the best thing 
that has ever happened to me.
Everyday I see your face,
And do I need to talk about the nights?
I saw this girl with no attitude
And the kindest of hearts..
We never even knew how the time went so fast.
Talked a lot, fought more,
And you taught me something new.
You opened up and I did too,
To earn the trust that was earned by a few
We walked a path that no one knew.
For me, you were becoming one of a few.
I liked so many things about you,
The way you talked,the way your eyes deceived,
Oh! you were so naive!


[Chorus]

Dying from inside I write this rhyme,
Don't ever expect me to be this blind.
This fire inside my heart is gonna burn me alive.
You are the one setting the fire and I just can't revive..


[Verse 2]

Remember why we fought most of the time?
It was always about "priorities"..
I wanted you to care just the way I cared for you!
Your boyfriend hated me 
'cuz you were drifting away..
But I hope you never did and hope you never won't.
That night at 11 pm, to be precise , 11:05.
I was called alone and I thought nothing was wrong.
They were six and he beat me up like a street dog...
'He' who? 'He'! Your f*****g boyfriend!
A coward with a spine so bend
that he couldn't even fight me alone..Yes, I was crushed.. 
This ain't a movie and I'm definitely no hero.
I couldn't take 'em all at once,
But this rhyme flows like how 'bolt' runs!


[Chorus]

Dying from inside I write this rhyme,
Don't ever expect me to be this blind.
This fire inside my heart is gonna burn me alive.
You are the one setting the fire and I just can't revive..


[Verse 3]

Days without talking and I even thought
You were the one who told 'him', "F**k him!"..
But how could I? No, I couldn't hold on much longer before I fell in.
You apologized so many times,
But 'ego' was just the one thing that didn't let us reunite..
Seen the darkest of my sides and what's more to see? Nothing!
We knew each other like no other,
We knew each other like we were the same person.
And now, thinking of you gets my heart racing..
Everything from then was ON and OFF..
Those times were tough like tides in the storm,rough!
Finally It was all OFF..
I left without even saying a proper goodbye
Broken and Angry,I hoped that your boyfriend would die.!


[Chorus]

Dying from inside I write this rhyme,
Don't ever expect me to be this blind.
This fire inside my heart is gonna burn me alive.
You are the one setting the fire and I just can't revive..


[Verse 4]

Loneliness was becoming more and more comfortable.
My situation was so pathetic that it wasn't even commendable..
You had one or two who cared, 
but giving you all the time, I even forgot to make friends.
My only 'friends' were the book and the pen,
And how they cared can be seen from my rhymes.
I was home alone listening to Eminem
When I got a call from a so-called-friend..
No! Not my friend,but one of yours.
Surprised, I picked up the phone and what do I hear?
"Her boyfriend was cheating on her all along!"
Was I happy? No!! Was I angry? Yes!!
I wanted to ask ,"How could you be so careless?" 
But then I remembered, we were not talking..Well,f**k it!
What kind of a friend am I if I'm not there when you need me.
I came back with whatever I can pack, the rest , we'll see!


[Chorus]

Dying from inside I write this rhyme,
Don't ever expect me to be this blind.
This fire inside my heart is gonna burn me alive.
You are the one setting the fire and I just can't revive..


[Verse 5]

F**k No.! Now I think this rhyme is too long,
My senses have gone sore,
Don't know how much I've bore!
I offered a helping hand, 
But nothing was the same as before!
This s**t is making me go insane
And now I think this isn't where I belong!
We've been ON and OFF for so long,
That we've forgotten how to move on..
And then, the final 'final goodbye'..! 
But now I wish it was just a lie,
Just a dream from which I can wake up.
But no! The fire inside is burning me alive along with my pride
And now it's a fight I just can't make up!!

Hm. I don't believe I've ever read any of your raps before, but this is definitely something that I myself might listen to. Did you really get beat up by this girl's boyfriend? That must have hurt!

Anyways, I can tell that you put a TON of emotion into this one, even without your note at the end of the rap. Your rhythm is on point while conveying a meaningful message that the readers themselves can learn from. 5/5 on this one, Aswin!

You are welcome.
Out of all the verses, I do like the chorus the best--it is powerful and it stands out to me.

And that's why it's the chorus. The other lines are the rap section which tells the story. ;)

I like the fact you state this is as a rap. I would be interested to hear it also :) A most deep and poignant reflection or many reflections that bring us release and the strength to purge. Powerfully delivered Aswin :)

Wow. I loved the story in this. I'd love to hear you rap this. Yeah, five verses is pretty long; most songs have two or three. You should be proud of this.
