About contradiction within me.

I want to sink

like a rock

to the bottom of the ocean.


I want to float

like a feather 

into a strong, loving embrace.


I want to move

like a meteorite

into the path of a bullet.


I want to stand

like a mannequin

with it's perfect body form.


I want to breath

like a human

collecting enough air into a set of lungs.


I want to smile

like he does

so I look as content as he.


I want to cry

like a newborn child

until there are no tears left and my body goes weak.


I want to whisper

like the wind and the trees

only to those who are worthy of my words.


I want to SCREAM!

like a psychotic wreck

because that's what I've become.
