Can't Hide
Author: Shiloh


I feel so cold lately...
nothing there to notice
or get involved with -
not much to even think about.
would that be a good word
to describe it?
not sure yet.
it's like my mind
just wants to be left alone,
and my body doesn't care any more,
but there is this energy-like attitude,
going around me,
making me feel like I should be -
but I don't know what,
can't quite put my finger on it,
and while I would just as soon
take a really long nap,
something else seems to be tugging at me,
something seems to be bothering me,
something seems to be pushing
to do... to do.... to do.........
but I don't know what.
I don't really care.
I'd go hide,
but they'd find me anyway.

The Heat

Perhaps it is the heat of summer. I get that way sometimes myself. Getting antsy, feeling shut in, but without motivation. Hope it blows over soon. As for the poem I am quite sure many people could feel relative to the feelings explored here.
