Does it make you feel

Uncomfortable?

 

My struggle to keep from sinking

Doesn't stop where you are,

 

Does it make you feel

Uncomfortable?

 

Words penetrating,

Skin unable to thicken,

 

Does it make you feel

Uncomfortable?

 

Eyes deceiving, pulling the plug

On my tear ducts,

 

Does it make you feel

Uncomfortable?

 

Because it's socially unacceptable

To release sadness in any way other

Than anger?

 

For some strange reason,

In front of others?

 

Because crying's reviled while

Aggression's admired?

 

Body's gut, twisted with all the fuck-ups

Of others force-fed and churned up,

With cast-offs of

"I was only joking",

"You're too sensitive",

"Calm down you're over-reacting",

Word-spears piercing

Through my eardrums,

The way they're spoken

With unfriendly intonation

Perceiving all kinds

Of unspoken communication

 

And as insulin keeps sugar levels even,

So empathy is medicine to endorphins' loose connections,

And released tears medication

 

When it rains it pours,

 

Heart pounding, face red hot and dizzy,

Choked up breathing uneasy,

Not now, not here, not in front of you,

 

Does it make you feel

Uncomfortable?

 

Me too.
