Nothing To Notice

If I get up and leave

Will anyone notice

The people around me

Are in their own little world.

I could just slip out

Through the back door

No one would notice

I just don’t matter anymore.

Take a walk in the night

Being sure I’m not noticed

I will disappear into thin air

Just a shadow you can’t really see.

If I were to vanish

Cease to exist

Become one with the wind

Would anyone notice.

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – September 13

Ah, it is that wonderful time again. No, not Friday the 13th, or the full moon, or the Harvest Moon.  It is time for another FFF.  Today I chose a poem from two years ago originally posted here.  It was for a daily word prompt – disobey.

I Will Not Disobey

I will not disobey

The wishes of my heart

Today is the day

I make a brand new start

I will not disobey

The musings of my mind

I will take the time

Always to be kind

I will not disobey

What I promise myself

My feelings I will never

Just place upon a shelf

Too much hurt and pain

Were bottled up in the past

Now I plan a future

Where happiness can last

Repeat That

You speak the words

I try to keep up

But it’s hard to assimilate

What you really mean

Are you saying

That you still love me

That I alone

Can meet your needs

I have dreamed of this day

And want it to be true

But I need to know

Do you mean I love you

No Sound But My Tears

My reserve energy is spent

I want to curl up in a ball

To ignore the deep pain

Shut out the world

And settle into my loneliness

Because no one notices anyway

And I’m so tired of being used

So goodbye for the rest of the day

I locked myself inside of

The consuming solitude

Understand Me

Excuse me please

May I borrow your courage

Mine seems to be gone

Along with my self-worth

May I take your confidence

And hold it through tomorrow

To give me strength

To face another day

May I have your love

So I am not so alone

When the world

All walks away

Above all else

Will you meet me

With understanding

When life makes me this way

Slowly you let out a sigh

You are very content

And so am I

My head on your chest

I listen to your heart beat slow

Nude bodies glisten

Caught in the midday sun

You stroke my back

And I shiver a little

You hold me tight

And we both laugh a little

You turn to kiss me

And I respond to you

The next thing you know

We are back

In the throes of passion

Still hungry for more.
