Feelings

There’s this feeling in my chest

weighing me down

It makes me twiddle my thumbs

Bite my lip

and shake my leg

 

Do you ever get a feeling

A feeling you can’t describe

It glides ever so randomly and drapes itself upon my chest

And sits in my heart like a waiting room

Waiting

Waiting

 

Oh feeling, I don’t know what you are

I’m sorry I kept you waiting so long

But I don’t know how to feel you

 

Yeah, somedays shit happens

It blindsides you

In the world we live in we can’t even take a moment to stop

And actually feel whatever is inside

We’re expected to shrug it off and save it for later

But if there are any of you out there

that are anything like me

It’s not easy to know how you’re feeling

Am I okay?

What is this emotion?

Am I supposed to feel this way?

I don’t know.

I don’t know.

I don’t know.

I don’t know!

 

Oh feeling, I don’t know what you are

I’m sorry I kept you waiting so long

But I don’t know how to feel you
