"I musn't forget I'm alive."
Ray Bradbury (Dandelion Wine)


Help, I'm stuck.
Back row.
Center stage.
Lost in the crowd of individuals.

Straining to hear myself
Over the silent scream

I'm alone
But that's what I wanted

Isn't it?

The search for myself
Intersects
The road maps
And game plans
Of so many others

Searching for themselves

Just
Like
Me

The taste of monotony fills my ears
And I'm back to where I began

Alone in a sea of millions

Hidden within myself.
Trapped in a broken spotlight.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem after getting distracted while doing homework. I kept jotting down words, phrase and feelings, and eventually they formed something that just might resemble a poem.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

This is beautiful!

I especially like the middle parts - straining to hear yourself, but this being what you thought you had wanted, and the spacing of "Just like me" implying such a harsh finality.

Your beginning and ending also tied the poem together beautifully.

C'est fantastique :)

Favorite! Why do you ask? Because I can feel the emotion, not only through the words, but through the structure. It's disorganized in an organized way. I want more of this.
