i’ve been told that maybe i feel differently
i feel on a scale of -5 to 15 instead of the usual
i’ve been told that i place too much hope in people
that it’s time to stop giving
to people who don’t care.
maybe i do feel harder than most,
how do i limit my scope
i don’t want to feel like this now
or ever again.
i’ve been told that i’ll learn from it
but i’ve told myself that it wasn’t worth it
so how is that a lesson.
how do i feel less
than right now
without being numb
