Less Than Human

August 23, 2009

Less than human

Your hand crawls up my shirt

Less than human

You take advantage of my soul

I'm spinning out of control

No one knows me

No one cares

I might as well dissolve into the air

And I won't protest it

I feel less than human

More than ugly

Your stare crawls up my face

More than ugly

You take advantage of my hesitance

I don't know how to resist

No one knows me

No one cares

I'm hurtling through thin air

And it feels kind of good

I feel more than ugly

Less than me

Your shadow crawls up my dreams

Less than me

You take advantage of my frailty

I don't know how to be free

No one knows me

And I can see why

I'm caving in inside

And I like the peace and quiet

I feel less than me
