This Feeling

The red light buzzes above
It’s raining within the windshield
My brow is tight and raised
My eyes are damp and hazy
But I do not cry, for I can’t find the reason
Some reason to push over that edge
And have the tears wash this feeling away
Whatever that feeling might be
I need vindication
But I can’t find the excuse
I wish this all was not real
That somehow I could live in a fantasy
Where I’m strong,
Smart,
Capable,
The protagonist of my own life
I’d have something to make me special
Something to draw someone special
Morality on my skin
Plumes on my back
Being able to fly
But here I sit
Ambiguity welling
The light changes
People pass
But the feeling doesn’t
