They say I’m crazy, insane even. Every mouth that moves with eyes set one me, it’s calling me a freak, it’s calling me a lunatic. They laugh at me, oh they do, and they think I know not of it. They think not that it fills me with anger and such loathing, such loathing as to scream, such loathing as to kill. I scream at them as they walk by, I bellow horrible, horrible things at them, but they cannot hear me, for no words leave my lips. My throat stretches with such pounding noise, but silence overcomes the room still. Hatred wrestling with aggravation in the pit of my stomach, tossing, churning, twisting, sinking! I lunge at the transparent wall, like a beast, snarling, clawing, thrusting my fist into it’s blunt surface! Can they hear this? Is such noise enough to redeem myself, enough to declare me sane, to declare me human? They pay not attention to my frustration, for they cannot acknowledge it. As much as I bang, as much as I yell, I am unheard. I drop into tears, which die on my lips as burning flames that burn like hell’s doves. Shall I forever remain this silenced outcast, doomed to die unheard?
