do you ever look around at the big crowds of people around you and realize everyone has a story and memories and family and troubles and achievements and a first kiss and a broken heart but you’ll never know any of it and every human life is really intricate and expansive but oh they’ve walked into a shop and you’ll never see them again and you’ll never know just what they were thinking
Do you ever just feel like a piece of extra baggage in someone’s life? Like they packed you up and were all excited to take you with them throughout life but then one day they just seemed to get tired of carrying you around and instead of loving your presence they just wanted to forget you were even there. It’s like at first you feel so loved and important and then one day you feel like you’re just a waste of space.
I am here.
Where the walls close in and there is no light,
That is where I am.
Looking for light among this barren landscape I call home.
