Michael McParland (7-19-1983 / Dayton, Ohio)
You're so beautiful so discreet,
such passion and attitude.
How could you ever love someone like me?
A freak so shy and unobtrusive,
you'll never think of me.
You look right past and through me,
never a twinge of recognition in your beautiful eyes.
It twists my heart as in a vice.
You're so full of spice!
I watch you as you laugh and hold him.
I would give anything for a moment of your time and affection.
I cry myself to sleep thinking of you
and all the beautiful things I could share with you.
I ask God for a reprieve but none comes.
I'll love you forever anonymous girl.
I hope you'll attend my funeral,
realizing all that you missed, but I doubt it.
So farewell anonymous girl,
for now if you truly dread.
I am now completely dead.
