The sun is shining,
And children play.

It looks like it's going to rain.

Is it just me?
I think I'm seeing things.

The city is crowded,
The heat.unbearable.

The sky is clear but I feel cold.

Maybe I'm crazy,
But I'm losing feeling.

Voices whisper in my ear,
but I pay no attention.

I think I'm hearing what isn't there.

"Come along. You know you want to.",
the voices still persist.

The sun goes down,
The stars arise.
I'm blinded by the light.

No matter what,
Or how hard I try,
Contrary existence is all I find.

Leave me here in melancholy.
