I Know What

I Know What

A Poem by Brie
"

Just a clarification, I guess.

"
I am no longer in pain,
but I know what pain is. 
I am no longer in love,
but I know what love is. 
I am no longer in my days of fair health,
but I know what health is. 
I am no longer in rapture,
yet, I know what rapture is. 

I don't quite understand why I have become so numb, or why I give my all to the people who give nothing in return. I must sound so greedy, so selfish, and so vague, but I have these feelings and accusations; they're getting in my way. I apologize for the incredibly rude aura I give off, and maybe it's not an aura and I'm actually a terrible person, but I really do try to be the best person I can, despite my unfair knowledge.

This sounds like a declaration of depression. Honest painful admission. I assume this was hard to write but I'm glad you were able to share with us

The collection of words so beautifully combined. You have written a very powerful piece.
