The Desperation to Feel


Why does one feel?

Sometimes, a person doesn’t.

A robotic life filled with no amusement,

no anger, and no love.


I am,

or should I say was,

that person.


Without feeling,

hurt is impossible.


without feeling there is no happiness.


The cure,


is time.


For a heart that was once closed

can soon again become opened.

I will not hide behind the mask that once shielded

my anger, my anguish, my happiness.


For at this moment,

I am feeling things

that once seemed impossible.


Feelings of



and love.


Feelings that I wish will never leave me.
