Do you ever have the feeling
that you're somehow outside yourself,
just watching things unfold,
somehow both present and outside time?
Have you ever felt that you were outside,
looking in, feeling like no matter what you do,
you'll never fit in?
Have you ever wished for the power to shape shift?
Or a cloak of invisibility?
Or a titanium case to protect your heart?
Tell me all about it.
I'm working myself up to do something
that is the right thing to do,
but will come at great emotional cost.
I'm wishing and feeling a lot of things
in the process.
Has this ever happened to you?
Maybe your story will fortify me
for what lies ahead.
