What Do You Think? I Care,

I always focus

On my own

Self-worth

Am I driving others away?

.

I ask myself

What I can do to be better

Hyper-analyzing my every move

Playing it back

And wondering

If they will remember

.

A mishap

A small gesture

A drop of water of little importance

…to others

To me, it falls in the pool

With thousands of ripples

.

oOoOoOoO

.

I see them all

Those ripples hit me

With the force of wind

Over a sea

.

They swipe at me

Eating my skin

My hair

My eyes

Leaving nothing but bones

.

The bones

Pierce the conscience

Left inside the soft skull

.

oOoOoOoO

.

What if?

What if?

What if?

She remembers

What I said

Did

Or might do

.

I worry

.

oOoOoOoO

.

I the skeleton

Feel soft flesh again

Growing gently

Over the bones

.

Soft flesh

Ready to be picked

Soft flesh

Ready to be scared

.

I bare my shirt

And get into fighting stance

I want to see

The birds fly

Before they come at me

.

oOoOoOoO

.

I want to analyze

Know the birds

.

No, the birds

Cawing and hawking

They come at me

What will they think?
