Am I Real?

Am I Real?

Who is the real me?

when an angry cloud constantly throws its shadow over me,

when my moods become words to define me.

Are they just moods?

Am "I" real?

or just another letter in an alphabet that spells so many words

insensitive

inadequate

insignificant

isolated

irrational

"I" am imprisoned, infected, intoxicated by my own insanity

I am

ill.
