Sometimes I Feel Like...
by Katie

Sometimes I feel like a bouquet of flowers
    Because I’m bunched up way too tight.
    Because brides are always throwing me over their shoulders.
    Because sometimes I’m allergic to myself.

Sometimes I feel like a hot knife
    Because I can cut through anything.
    Because I’m honed to a perfect edge.
    Because I’m easily knicked.

Sometimes I feel like a lazy do-nothing
    Because I lose all track of time.
    Because… what? What was the question?
    Because sometimes I need someone to snap me out of it.

Sometimes I feel like a sparrow
    Because my bones are hollow.
    Because my heart beats faster than you can imagine.
    Because if I had wings, in an instant I’d be gone.
