The way I feel is disproportionate

To the way things are.

But feeling small

Is no small thing.

And if you were to put a microscope

To a blank slide

And see no single thing

Living or

Functioning or

Existing at all,

You'd say,

"This is nothing."

And you would be right.

But you would also be looking at me

And how you make me feel.
