Hidden In The Crowd.

People-watching at my table
Always with my purple hat and iPod
I close my eyes now feeling stable
Always unnoticed thanks to God

Destined to be alone
Just a useless thing you drop behind
I would remain unknown
Nothing could change my mind

But then I see you gliding towards me
I watch you, unsure what to think
You just smile as if you have my heart along with the key
So close, I could hear our heartbeats in sync

But you walk past me and I wait for you to turn around
I look back and see the other girl, your girl smiling back
Mental tears flood my body completely without sound
Blocking my brain, running me off track

My eyes flash back open to life
Of course no one had noticed my little dream
Something pierces through my heart like a knife
I do another mental scream

Silent tears fill my eyes and roll down my cheeks
I cry noiselessly as much as my eyes allowed
You could tell I was crying by my tear streaks
For I would always be just a stranger hidden in the crowd

Very nice. Only some of the rhythm felt a little off, but I like it.

I was listening to Moonlight Sonata while reading this. =] hehe i like your work. A stranger hidden in the crowd, I know this feeling. But the good thing about bad feelings is that they are good inspiration hehe. =]

Such a beautiful poem, written by such a unique and talented person-you. I read your About Me section and what I read made me think of myself. I hope that someday you will let out your true self, even though I understand the security you feel by keeping yourself hidden.
Keep writing!
