I know I'm human.

I feel pain
I hurt
I cry

Then there are times when I can't
Don't feel a thing


Just catatonic
Oblivious to my surrondings
Locked up in a glass box
So, everyone else can see
but me

My pain 
My hurt
My tears
My blood

Knowing not a care to who sees me
swirling swaying in the wind
Selfless satisfaction with immediate gratification


Attitude bad
understanding of the momment witholding
Jaws tight with stress
Face frozen 
Blank stare

Yet my insides are necrotic
My insides stink
Reeking of insecurities

I fan the frangrance
Making my insides unstable
Molecules of fear bounce directionless
Anticipating the intense
of explosion


You feel pain
You hurt
You cry
You bleed

While I stand spent
Aware of my humanity.
