I'm A Siren

February 1, 2008
By Margaret Westenhoff, Reston, VA

It seems we go for miles and miles around each other

Never touching, like distant constellations

Distant stars that shine at one another

Do you see me shining? Do you hear my siren?

I’m wailing down a busy street

Walking running stomping my feet

Trying so hard to catch up with you

But I don’t know where you’ve gone

Are you somewhere in this empty space

Are you out there alone?

Because I think I am alone

I seems like I am still alone

And I swear this isn’t modesty

It seems like there’s nothing I can do here

And it seems like this is honesty
