Please Don’t Look Me In The Eye

As the volume of voices in my head swell

I pace, back and forth, with fist hitting thigh,

trying to get the voices to quell.

         Please, don’t look me in the eye.

Hoping to find a way to dispel,

on others around, I am a spy.

I’m doomed to stay on life’s stairwell

           Please, don’t look me in the eye.

Forgive me for being unwell.

It hurts to live life classified as a “standby”

and your home is an ugly shell.

         Please, don’t look me in the eye.

When my pain is great and I have to tell

The cruelest thing a person can say is, “Try.”

Don’t they think I would try and get out of hell?

        Please, don’t look me in the eye.

The horrors of my past my mind constantly dwells.

Are you sure the pain I’m in won’t make me die?

These evil things from my mind, I want to expel.

        Please, don’t look me in the eye.

The world we live in will not allow me to yell.

I have no choice, I must lie

The only time truth is permitted is when I use my inkwell.

        Please, don’t look me in the eye.

Before I act a fool and society norms I rebel,

I lift my hand and wave goodbye.

I feel tears about to swell.

        Please, don’t look me in the eye.
