I am alone, yet not lonely.
I am unique, although I am just like you.
I love, but I am not in love
I care, and do not let myself be cared for.
I wish, and cannot hope.
I am living, yet I am not allowed to live.
I am dangerous, although I am very gentle.
I am disgusting, yet beautiful.
I feel pain, even though I have been through no harm.
I live on Earth, although I spend time in space.
I am normal, yet I am insane.
I am visible, but I cannot find myself.
I am human, although I feel alienated.
I feel clean, but I have become tainted.
I am silent, although my soul is screaming.
I stand before you, yet I am already so far gone.
