What Am I Feeling?

More and more I have noticed.
There is something not quite right inside me.
It is quite subtle.
It has to do with my feelings.
For many feelings there is no problem.
Simple anger, frustration or joy.
I feel them just fine.
But feelings about other people
Don't work quite right.
I don't think I let myself feel
My true feelings about other people.
I am afraid to know what I am feeling
About other people.

c. March 1984
