I don't know how I'm feeling.
Blah? Is that a real word?
Is that a way to describe how I'm feeling?
It sounds pretty close,
But I'm not sure it's the right word.
If it is a word.

Strange mind tonight.
Not strange weird,
But strange & lost?
Strange & empty?
Strange & uncaring?
Just strange, I guess.
I really can't put a handle on it.

I don't like the way I feel.
I do know that.
I don't understand it.
I don't know why I'm feeling this way.
Feeling like I just don't care,
At the moment,
About anything.

I know that I have things
I was looking forward to doing,
Things I wanted to work on,
Things that were,
A little while ago,
Giving me some enjoyment
As I thought about them and worked at them-.

But now?
Now I don't know.
Now I don't seem to care much,
And Now I don't understand
What it is that
Just isn't - it just ISN'T.!!
It is not what it should be.

And I don't know what to do about it.
