An Iceberg.

An Iceberg.

A Poem by JAM


around me in all parts

are those that live for

their own enjoyment

and i am so wrapped up in misery

that i am failing to see why i should care.

you come to me

and expect me to understand

why you need to instigate this crusade

and you need to stand up for

yourself more.

why do you not explain your heartbreak?

poetic words of clarity are not required.

you do not need to always

be mature and understanding.

allow yourself selfishness.

and you should relax more.

stop breaking in anxiety and

expelling your stress onto the world.

with the world in shambles

as it is in this day and age.

no one will text message a care,

not even i who loathes my

solitude as much as i thrive off

of it even if i am signed by

obligation to extend my heartfelt

sympathy �" i cannot.

i am an iceberg out at sea.

your struggle is such a hush-hush topic

yet i can recite it backwards and


you do not need to tell me your struggle.

i know, i feel, i struggle with it too.

understand you are not alone

though you feel lonely.

stop seeking my approval;

i control nothing by myself and when

i lose control over that, i am helpless.

i struggle, i fluster, i suffocate

and i will submerge you with me.
