Hmm it's true if not for readers what is poetry. Aptly said in your small poetic jewel. 10+++ Rating to the poem and poet.

Every book has its readers. Someday someone will read the poems.

I DO AGREE that wallflowers and poems may be 'lonely', sometimes 'against their wills/desires, BUT TRUTHFULLY it's the human poets who may be 'lonely'. I doubt that POEMS have feelings in reality. : ) ,

I used to think of a wallflower as also a 'plain or unattractive female at a dance', but possibly anxious/wanting to be asked to dance by a male.

I AM NOT a 'WALLFLOWER', yet many of my poems 'sit against the dance room wall, more than ready to 'DANCE'! ! !
