“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”-Dr. Suess

I hear your voice,
though no words come through.
From your horrified look,
I know it must be true
that you are suffering
from something unknown,
and it's so deathly terrifying,
it chills me to the bone.
Your eyes tell a story
that only I can hear.
I long to help you,
make your suffering's end near.
But i can only watch you,
and imagine your pain.
I feel simply awful
that your screams are in vain.
So I sit and I watch you,
from far far away,
knowing that terrified
is how you spend everyday.

It is something I wrote based off the painting "The Scream"

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

quite so, who knows, what the painter have painted is beautiful, but is awlfully gross. Some says a painting shows its painter's soul- perhaps this is it, Edvard Munch himself chose depression and death as his themes. Still, there are light at every road, well written poem to simplify those feelings indeed.
