Like a balloon,
I’m deflated.
Like soil,
They step on me.
Like a corpse,
No one pays attention to me.

I became a joke.
I felt a choke.
Was I dying,
Or was I laughing?
I don’t know.

Like a headless chicken
I was lost,
I was down,
I was drowning.
They saw it all,
Yet they ignore it

They put me in the dark
And left me there.
Alone, I struggled,
I fought shadows,
My words, I swallowed,
I was out of words.
They laughed again.

I got tired.
With a smile
They were confused,
They gave up and
Never laughed again.

With confidence
They were sad and gave up.
Where it led,
Was a beautiful destination.
My heart was free at last
