A Dragon's Egg

A dragon's egg over a fire.
A fissure across the surface.
Life breaks free.

Recently I have been in a strange state of mind. Mentally I don't feel sad or annoyed or happy or emotional. I don't feel anything. I will laugh with my friends but inside I don't feel anything. I feel like there is a cage around my chest and it keeps getting tighter, almost like the dragon's egg. Every time I take a breath the cage tightens. I keep bottling up my emotions and soon this cage is going to crack. I am going to crack. When I do, will I feel better? Will I break out of the cage?
