Something that Feels like Nothing
“You’re just going to be like this forever, aren’t you?”
Sometimes thoughts should be held in, suppressed,
Especially when they make those you love depressed.
I don’t want to be this way, I say, as I tearfully turn away.
Then, I sleep deep, dreamlessly, and wake to another day.
Silent and alone, with noise and love I feel distant from.
You are indifferent to my suffering, watch as I overcome.
Though I wish and want for you to be present and loving,
I get excuses, feeble attempts at soothing, something that feels like nothing…
