Turned down,

didn’t make it,

part of the cut.


Chopped up,

turned outside in,

heart severed.


Rejected, flicked,

esteem stolen,

devalued, nowhere.


Sad, numb,

angry, silent,

embarrassed, dumb.


The dead weight

of the moment

that smothers

your being.



no platitudes!

I don’t want

to be told

about the

next time.


I am just feeling

all that disappointment

is for me right now.
