How It Feels

How It Feels

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

I have never known 
how it feels to get drunk
to lose your senses
and forget your worries, 
at least for a moment or two

I have never known
how it feels to fall in love
be with the person who could 
make me forget who I am
at least for a moment or two

I have never known
how it feels to be betrayed in love
have my heart crushed
my soul ripped apart
at least for a moment or two

I have never known
how it feels to feel emotions
being a cold-hearted person that I am
to sympathize, to comfort others
at least for a moment or two

But seeing the countless people before me
who wished the same as me
and they got it too
makes me feel that I'm better off like this
at least for a moment or two.....

"But seeing the countless people before me

I really like this stanza. It's low, but you wove in some hope. Sometimes that's all you need, and this illustrates that well.

"at least for a moment or two" - the use of this throughout really pulls it together, and also lends credence to the temporary nature of what you're feeling. That things will/can change.

Well done.
