just how im feeling

I don't really know what I'm doing here,
This isn't quite crying, its not quite tears.

A pain so dull its almost invisible now,
Yet I still feel it I'm just not sure how.

It fills me up from tip to toe,
Not crying not smiling, in the middle I flow.

You'll call it nothing "never mind" you'll say, likely.
But this is what I've come to be, it defines me.

"Never mind" so engraved, it undermines my achievements.
"Never mind, its not as if its real pain, like bereavement."

"Never mind" - my heart feels permanently broken.
"Never mind" complete dismissal, the words you've just spoken

"Never mind" - so desperately craving affection
"Never mind, I think you're just craving attention"

"Never mind" - why can't you people just see,
Though I can't explain it, can't you tell by looking at me?

And then finally "What's wrong? You're not ok I'm not blind!"
I can't explain it so I'll say
"Never mind"
