NPM 2012 #23: Indifferent Folks

I must be in a really sensitive zone
but when I greet people that I know
and they give me
an indifferent glance,
a cold, limp handshake,
and a fake smile that could be made of glass,
I lose heart in myself.

I need to re-toughen my newly sensitive skin
for I cannot tolerate the indifferent cruelty
that people can possess
when life is so short and can be
cut off
at any time.
