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
myself.

i feel so disgraced,
degraded?

i wanna run
i, i, i,

i am sick of me.

i need to get over
myself.

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
exposed.

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

    I agree with Karen, you are a powerful writer expressing emotions and pain. You are the voice of so many with this one piece. Awesome write. ~Des Juan

    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.
