a Poem by Raquel Swann

I walk amongst the millions

Disappearing into a crowd

Normal people

Wearing drab clothing

Dull eyes, pointless gazes

You never lose sight of me

An aura surrounds me

Through your magical telescope

You see me

I can’t blend with you watching

In a sea of grays and black

Pink emits from my soul

You trail me through

A maze of bodies

Until I’m stuck in a corner

Alone and afraid

You smile as if to say

“I understand.”

Perhaps you do.

When will I?
