There's a feeling of invisibility
in the middle of chaos
and a numbness that creeps in
You learn to stand outside yourself
to find some way of fitting in
You want to to feel something
and let others know
Eventually, you explode when rage
is the first to show
People please then isolate
Alone even when surrounded
Moving through a life
that makes no sense
Messy relationships and emptiness
Chasing after that next storm
so recognizable in its being wrong
