i am

i am angry
i am offended
i am blue

notice the i, i, i,
when will it end?

dammit, i hurt
i feel sorry for

i feel so disgraced,

i wanna run
i, i, i,

i am sick of me.

i need to get over

this writing stinks.
i am in agony.

i am unloveable
and untouchable.

i feel like crushing
myself under
my heel

if i could bend down
that far.

i might as well be
a stripper as much
as my body as
been invaded and

i can't listen to
myself anymore;
i am a putz.

    No, you are a writer expressing her pain and a worthwhile human being all rolled in one. Pat youself on the back and take a deep breath, knowing that people care about you. My thoughts and prayers go with. Thank you for your kind words on my poem.
