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

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
