How Do I React – Written Tuesday 31st January 2012 (Aged 36)

How Do I React

sometimes,
if feels as if people –
want more of a reaction
as if,
i am not conveying –
what they expect
but,
there is not pre set plan
just a numbness
and a far off dream
i do say words to people
but their hungry eyes –
always want seconds
or something different –
from the menu
but,
i am being realistic
i am just going with the grief
trying not to be scared
and people ask,
how am i?
have you got the time –
to sit down and listen
i do not think i can begin to explain
there is something lacking
that describes itself as, ‘pain’
