Apathetic

Apathetic

A Poem by Summer D.
"

Apathetic feelings.

"
Apathetic

A muffled hum escapes my folded arms.
and covered face.

Seeking the warmth between my fingers.
Perhaps between my toes. 

Your merry cheers fall deaf on my ears.
I turn A sullen cheek to the silence.

The morning light is now a nuisance.
The talking birds signal lunacy.

Hard of hearing I walk a dusty path
toting what is left of my being.

Eden. 
In a biblical sense-- I've been cast out. 

Tweaking my ear won't help my mood. 
I swat away a helpful hand. 

Impish fiend.
Curses fall through my open lips. 

Caught between a world of defined colors 
and a simple shading of just one.

It is days like these...

Apathetic.

Author's Note

Summer D.
It's a word I don't really use.
But a friend of mine does.

I find I can relate.
As my mood of late
has been quite so.
Apathetic.

Broke out of 6-word lines~
Another poem~

You've amazed me well with this poem, from it's clever structure to the wide vocabulary to the brilliant meaning of this, it has left me speechless. The ending was the best part of this. This poem has really delved deep into me and pierced my soul, it has really absolutely hit home for me. Plain amazing poem, I've never seen any other poem that quite has the impact of this.

Brilliant. I like the form and the unusual imagery you used.
"Caught between a world of defined colors

Powerful ending. Thank you.
