My Crime

November 21, 2007
By Mina Sattari, Yorba Linda, CA

I've heard it a million times
"we're not mad, just scared."
If you're not mad why do you scream?
Do you not realise its all your fault
that you did this to me?

Your lack of attention
has torn me apart
from the inside out
ripped through my heart and soul
and I am no longer whole.

Oh and its just fine and dandy
that everyone knows.
They act like they dont,but they do,
all of them scanning me up and down as I pass by.

No psycho lady,
I do not want to talk about it.
I have nothing to talk to you about
so whats the point?

Whats the point of anything?
Meaning has been sucked out of the world.
Life is a meaningless way to pass time,
and since when is pain a crime?
