Perhaps I should confess to you,
That I am trapped within this box of crushing insecurity...
Screaming as I shatter my nails against the wall.

But I'm sure you'll tell me to just smile and wave.



Bluh, shot-glass poem tonight. Still no recordin' equipment. I should get a new set on friday.

All that combined with the lack of a proper job...is givin' me the shrieks! (Yes I said shrieks, I go mad when I'm stressed x'D)

Sounds like someone with depression/anxiety versus someone who won't believe them or just doesn't want to see. Or maybe that the person screaming is only screaming on the inside, while afraid of what would happen if they actually said something. Either way, I love it.

Very nice work! :D I could really see and feel the imagery. It has a powerful impact, too. I think the poem is true, sadly, for some people.

Aw I can relate to that (though I'm telling myself to just smile and wave then mostly). Well written and hit the point.

Been there, not a nice place, but can be a source for a lot of creative doings. Though the physical and mental state won't be all that good.

I like that, shot-glass poem. :)

 

I remember being at that point before in my life, where I physically wrapped my arms around myself to keep it together cause I just felt like falling apart that much. when told that crossing my arms showed bad attitude, I just smiled and tucked my hands in my pockets and prayed I didn't go to pieces.

 

beautiful piece

As an answer I'd tell you:

You should pick up the crumps
from the ground,
and try to spread a way you like to walk on.
And you should wander on it,
even if its a circle.

Yes, what makes one penetrate, the borders without getting hurt, is nothing less, but steadiness within
but never forget: To break into the world is an option, not a duty. No one should force you to leave, not even yourself.

Sorry, If that sounds, cocky. I know only my fate, but I believe right now, I leaned a lot from it.

Honestly, it's not being told to smile that's the problem - it's when other people smile and pretend to be so very understanding. You lay your problems out, you bare your soul, you reveal to them your deepest insecurities and they nod their heads, make agreeable noises and change the subject.

Sometimes you need your sadness validated before you can move on to being happy.
