Alone in the Dark

the ghost's picture

I stand a lonely silhouette,
And I watch the world run by,
I stand here all alone,
Simply asking why?
Not that anyone ever stops,
Or even hears me cry,
I stand here all alone,
Simply asking why?
I look at faces,
Long lost now to me,
Of people once so close,
Now, so far,
That they can't even see,
The lonely silhouette,
Not a shadow of me.

I wrote this poem a few years ago when I was around 14,I found it the other day I figured I may as well post
it.

the creative writing department at walnut hill,

an intensive arts high school,has 8 lesbians/girl-bis, 3 gay guys, 1 person of ambiguous gender, 1 straight girl, and 1 straight guy. Gay people certainly do show up more in the arts field...

Are you hanging on to something useless just because you think it's beautiful?
