I feel like I’m skinless
Every part of me, exposed
Revealed for inspection
Every secret thing

I feel like I’m weak
Too weak to save myself
A pathetic meat sack
With no real reason

I feel like I’m drowning
In the acidic waters of life
Flesh to bone
Resigned to this fate

Others seem to understand
In ways that I cannot
I mimic them
So that I appear
As though I have insight into my own dilemma
