Eleanor Ransom

(1997- i dono i havent died...yet lol / maidstone)

standing alone in a crowd

im standing alone in a crowd
im holding your hand, its not the same
i let go, walk away
i turn from you, hidding the tears cos im ashamed
why wont you see, i dont mean to push you away
cant you tell, thats when when i need you most
this is why
im standing alone in a crowd
and when i need you there you disapper
you cant expect me to be there
and when things turn
you act as if you dont care
this is why
im standing alone in a crowd
you say we're friends foever
but i know better
we're friends when you want to be
you say we spend most our time together
but thats not what it seams to me
i walk from the crowd
not able to take it any more
you think im ignoring you
but its not you its the world
and the world has a price to pay
for not shoinging what is like to be left out
torn apart and thrown away
for this is why
im standing alone in a crowd
unable to escape or getaway

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
