Wall I am no one Yet I know everyone I can hear you Thrashing in your sleep Singing off key in the shower Crying silently at nothing and everything When you think you’re alone I’m still there Ready to be your friend I listen to you talk Late into the night But it’s never about me I keep all your secrets And ask for nothing in return I never sleep Not once in my hundred years I doubt you even know I’m here You see me every day But never stop and say hello

How creative, giving walls a personality! Great voice, and good job keeping with the character. Keep writing! Do you think you could check out and comment on some of my work?

I like the idea of the poem but I don't really get how it relates to the tittle? but otherwise I really like the creativity.

Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge, oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege, and everbody needs you. - The Killers

I like this... it's told interstingly and it's very relatable... well-written, a strong piece. Keep up the good work!

Check out my stuff if you have the chance?
