I'm up, I'm down.
Happy and Sad,
Scared and Angry.
Tense then relaxed.
Words and feelings whirling and swirling around in my head.
Everything scrambled and not making sense.
I want to be around people, but only so I don't feel alone.
I don't want to talk, I only want to listen,
I want to feel but at the same time I want to be numb.
I want to be happy but without having to make all this effort.
I'm tired, I'm wired, I'm erratic, I'm scared.
I want to run and punch,
I want to scream and shout.
I want to dance to the music and be held in its beat.
I want this to be over, I want to sleep...
