Cellophane

I can’t complain;
I’ve got it made.
I’m lost in the void – not like them other boys;
Barely sane.

I don’t know what to feel, so I freeze –
It’s all concealed behind closed doors;
Wrapped in cellophane, I’m on my knees.
Devoid of joy, and full of shame;
I don’t know what’s real anymore or who’s left to blame.

It’s not how you’d choose to live – unfulfilled, and disdained.
Lose your dignity just to save face, in lieu of booze, and mind games.
But I still resent the time it takes,
To climb so high, and then fall from grace.

I’m plastered in cellophane,
And I can’t feel a goddamned thing.
Hit me with your best shot,
‘Cus pretty soon, I fear I’ll have nothing left to lose.

I can’t complain;
I’ve got it made – but still, ashamed,
To be wrapped up in cellophane.
Mask the strain in favour of blind faith.
I’ve got an aversion to change and no emotional range.

Lost in the void; the white noise.
I’m in Heaven, then I’m in hell;
I’m not like them other boys,
Oh, they play it off so well.
So I’ll never tell them what it’s like, to fear for your life,
Barely sane and wrapped in cellophane.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
