A failures frown and a sunken smile
Written across my face
My uncomfortable eyes and suspicious looks
Darting all around
I try to hide these tremor ridden hands
And tapping feet
My racing heart and shallow breath
Are easier to disguise
Contradicting mind, thoughts accelerate
Yet no words make sound,
Just an outer shell muted by this curse
An extravert inside of me
Which doesnt allow the world to see
Judgemental feelings, am I weak?
Every thought to speak overwhelms me,
Each sentence and word combine
They mix and form to one
A senseless mould of comprehension
Which appears and then its gone
Fear of embarrassment and rejection is now a rule
A belief imprinted in my soul
Looked upon with fear, aggression or pity
Its holding him back I hear them say
Believing I am not seen as I am not heard
Furious that they say these things
It only makes it worse
