Please don't look at me.
Don't see me.
Don't talk to me.
Pay no attention
to my self.
I am just another passerby
nothing more.

Please ignore my
My brokeness
and despair.

Don't mind my
agonizing screams
crying out for help.
even if they are meant for you.

I am the
unseen the
unheard the

So bystanders that will
grace the halls tomorrow,
please ignore
the passerby
and leave me to myself.
