I waited there in the bright sunlight
Occasionally waving my arms
Shuffling my feet, anything
Just to get their attention.
I began to think them blind.
After all, I wasn’t in the shade’
There wasn’t a cloud in the sky,
And the sun was shining.
They were interacting with each
other so the could see and hear.
Oh, I see. They have enough friends
And I’m annoying.
Imagine how much more annoyed
They were by my noises and
Movements for their attention.
I’ll bet deep down each one of
Them is glad I finally went away.
I did it for them. Cause I still care.
No reason to stalk me, see.
I’m still as pathetic as I ever was.
The moonlight burns her eyes
So she reacheS for something
Soothing to put in them.
How about this silver bullet.
That’ll kill the pain.
No, she glimmers.
If I am that awful to be around
I deserve this pain.
Alas, after only a year, two of them
Came to invite me to hang with them.
But I know it was for charity
And not because my presence isn’t
Like nails on a chalkboard. So I sit.
I sit and I wait.
