No Feelings

September 30, 2008
By Jennie Cassady, Spring, TX

Have I lost my trust or become more guarded?
All the feelings others are so quick to reveal
The love, the hate, the ideals
I find impossible to speak, to write
Instead, I mask myself in comedy
Make them laugh, they won’t ask any questions
Just don’t make me say what I feel
I can’t tell anyone what I feel anymore

Where has this wall, this block, this façade come from?
My wounds have not been unusually brutal
Nothing severe, no heartbreaks, no backstabs
Is it just the way I am?
Some sort of genetic oddity
Or am I just that afraid of getting hurt?
