• On a bad day I feel dead inside
  • I can’t feel emotions
  • I feel hollow
  • I cannot cry but I want to
  • I can’t even feel angry
  • My heart is beating
  • I’m alive I guess
  • I’m not afraid yet there is danger
  • It’s like being a robot
  • My responses are automatic
  • My speech is memorized
  • I force myself to smile
  • I may as well be a block of wood
  • I really want to care about what’s happening
  • I want to feel something–anything
  • I just can’t
  • Not today
  • It’s a bad day
  • Tomorrow will be better

dead inside
