I know what you're thinking.

It's obvious when I look at your face.

'He's a coward, he's immature, he's foolish'

And you're right...

I can't live up to your standards.

The pressure, the pace, the overload of information.

I can't take it.

I'm lost!

I don't know what I'm doing!

And I don't understand...

I'm not you.

I don't know what it's like to feel normal...

But what I do know, is what's in front of me,

And to me, it's frightening!

I really want to change myself,

(Because I hate myself...)

But please, understand, it's not that easy,

It's never easy, when you don't understand.

When you go through each day feeling different.

Because I'm not you...

But if 'you' are what I have to be,

Then I'm afraid I would rather not be, at all!
Okay everyone,

So sorry for this lazy release. I've been so busy with my job...and I kinda got addicted to Warframe...sorry TnT

Ahem, anyway, I couldn't think of a title for this piece, I wanted to call it 'Hikikomori', but most people wouldn't understand what it means. Essentially it's just about how a shut-in feels most of the time...and I should know since I'm practically a shut-in x'D Except I have a job .3.

Anyway, since I couldn't decide on the title, I decided to have none at all! Now I know why oaklungs uses the '.', it's hard to find a title sometimes...I decided to do the same, but I didn't want to copy her so I used THREE DOTS. Cause three dotz iz betta den wun dot! Dat's good orky philosophy right dere. Two choppaz is betta den wun choppa! :iconorkplz:

Alright, excuse my insanity, it's late and after venting out this piece and killing tons of Grineer in a survival mission, I feel happy x'D

Enjoy the poem everyone!

Very nice. I actually feel like that, sometimes. I know what you mean about not coming up with a title; that happens to me too many times to count... Although, sometimes it's because I'm just too lazy to think of a title.

This is sweet... this is the first time I am commenting on one of your poems but I read them every time I see them (or can get to a computer).

As for titles, I usually just go with words that feel like the poem, even if it seems to make no sense... plus a title will make it easier to find than having to search hopelessly for a poem that you loved but it's title was "..." or"." or even "... --- ...".

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment and I'm glad that you read and like my work. I appreciate it ^^
