This feverishness

This feverishness,

I want to hide.

I hate gaining sympathy

being in the limelight

for something that is going on within me,

be it a sickness of the body

or of emotions.

These hot tears,

I want to hide.

I don’t feel love,

I feel empty.

It’s not that I cannot show what I feel,

but that I do not want to show

what I feel

to anyone except him.
