Reaction:  Curse



An almost intolerable annoyance
to any who look my way with indifference;
an inexpressible sadness
upon anyone who looks on me with amusement;
an infinity of minute adjustments
for all who look at me with pity;
a compulsion to perform an impossible task
to those who see me and are confused;
an irresistible urge to trip over every little thing
for any who view me with anger;
the feeling of shrinking, of collapse,
to each who doesn't see me;
and love, only love, always love,
for those who see me and love.
