Parentheses

Here, for your pleasure:


(I'm Always In Parentheses)

(I'm always in parentheses)
(which makes me hard to hear)
(regardless if I'm yelling loud)
(or if you're leaning near.)
 
(It sounds as if I'm whispering)
(my voice is just a squeak)
(and even if I scream and shout)
(it comes out soft and meek.)
 
(Parentheses imprison me)
(they hold me like a jail.)
(I try to break these tiny curves)
(but every time I fail.)
 
(I'm sick of these parentheses,)
(these little muffling arcs.)
I WISH I WAS IN CAPITALS
WITH EXCLAMATION MARKS!!!!
