Civil War

I’m trying to pass off as someone I’m not, trying to seem like I FEEL but I don’t. I don’t really get sad or happy or angry. It’s not numbness, it just takes a lot more to get me emotional. It’s a battle from my nature which is very perfectionist tidy and all that and what I chose, to be free spirited and wild and messy. And it’s like they’re fighting each other for control and I just want to tell my selves to shut up and get along because you’re tearing me apart.

I really like the message. I can relate.. But what is it exactly? It's not a short story.. Is it a poem? Free verse, maybe? Is it a thought or an opinion? It's jumbled and overlapped and crazy but it works because that's how we feel. Jumbled, overlapped, and crazy... The form of the entire passage is upsetting. I think it would make a loooovely free verse:) with lines/ stanzas

It is more of a prose piece. Thank you, it is just how I feel. Trying to put myself into words(:
