when did it become a crime to feel
emotions have been discarded like toxic waste
no warmth remains
in this Ice Age
feelings are the enemy and must be avoided at all costs
we clothe ourselves in layers of
sarcasm and nonchalance
no emotions coursing through our veins to remind us of our humanity
we are The Walking Dead
looking for love but striving to feel nothing
we abhor vulnerability
and view caring as weakness
emotions were badges of honor
now they are scarlet letters
and we play emotional dodgeball
to avoid catching Feelings.
