Alien lifeI see them looking at me and wonder:
"Do they know? Do they see that I don't belong? That I am an alien?"
I shake these thoughts from my head and look back down at the paper in front of me
I half wonder if I could get away with writing in my native tongue
They would just tell me to write in normal "English" like a normal person
Wonder if they realise just how hard it is to learn English as a second language for some people
I know they don't but a kid can dream right?
I go home and try to do my homework, I quit because I can't understand it
No matter how hard I try I can't make it
I listen to some music
Until people give me strange glances when they can hear the lyrics
They ask what kind of crap that is
I tell them simply that it's rock
They laugh and turn to each other to whisper secrets and hurt into each other's ears
God I hate the fact that I'm not born and bred
I am an immigrant
Though most would say that I'm an alien
Do I look like ET or Spock to you?
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
