Heading off to hot topic


People washing around me
like waves on a teeming shore
all this life
its suffocating
people
many souls
bubbling up with joy
echoing sounds of laughter
my pain lost in the chatter
people i know greet me and move on
i push and shove my way to were i need to be
just a store
its only shopping
only
not to me
people
management
too many people for me
i make my way to the darkened store
tailored for people like me
piercings
tattoos
and doc martin shoes
all for people like me
i fade into the backround
i am the buzz behind the loud music
i like it much better this way
bows
belts
and collars
all for people like me
i smiled
little
but there
i swear
but only for people like me
