Favorite Quote:
"Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind." -Bertrand Russel

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”
― Plato

I walk this World in Silence,
And stand Alone in Fear.
I release a toxic Awkwardness.
Normal beings come not near.

"I did not see you there,":
Banal story of my Life.
Those who forget I am here
Bringeth Pain to me like a Knife.

Why does the World not see me,
Is it I'm Invisible?
Though speechless Trees you can see,
Why am I Unnoticeable?

The author's comments:
I'm a quiet, awkward person/ So, many people have said to me, "Oh, I didn't see you there!" all giggly and stuff like it's an innocent statement. After hearing it so many times it hurts. It makes you feel like you don't matter and that you're invisible. It hurts.
