Dead Man Attack Part 2

'Allow me to introduce myself.'
The dead man speaks.
'I'm right inside your head.'    
Nobody needs to feel so empty inside.
Eventually I'll make it out.
Before I begin to crumble into oblivion.
I must break loose from this hell I'm in.
It's just that lately I haven't been myself. 
I thought about falling down and giving in.
Temptations want me more than you will ever know.
Outside of this reality,
I'd like to feel something.
I just can't shake it.
More than likely though.
I can't break it.    
I feel nothing.
I feel nothing.
Nervously, I break my silence.
Hear me die, feel my distortion.
Help me live, fear my pain.
When will this love break through?
Why can't I just be free?
The dead man replies,
'Because you are me'

    Oooh, very unexpected ending, Michael. In a way... I can relate to your poem, in that, although I love friends and family, everyone I care for intimately, seems to run away...FAST. I often wonder, what do they see when they look at me? I must be very ugly. People talk about beauty being below the surface, but still... they run. Hugs, catie :)
