Still There

You hear them talking,
Behind your back,
Feel the ring in your ears,
Feel their stares, their pointed fingers,

Hear them laughing,
Gossip pouring from,
Their crimson lips.

Feel their snide looks,
Up and down, left to right,
From eyes lined in pencil,
With covers of shine.

Know they’re twirling,
Their straightened hair round,
Their manicured nails thinking,
Gosh am I glad that’s not me.

But, still hear them laughing,
And smiling, and whispering,
Towards the girl,
They don’t have to be.
