Not Entirely Gone

December 25, 2011
He was always that kid who wasnt in any school pictures.
He sat in the corner of the room.
With his dark hair,
and his dark,
Not a single trace,
of a smile crossed his face.
Nobody payed any attention.
At first,
he was just that,
lonely kid.
But then one day,
He. Was. Gone.
From the car accident,
that maybe didn't..
kill him.
The old pick-up truck,
flipped over,
leaving him stranded.
Underneath the burning car.
Some bypassers, said,
he didnt try to get out.
He let himself die.
No sound except the
crackling flames came.
Others say,
he WANTED to die.
He meant for the
to happen.
Nobody really noticed.
Nobody really cared.
It was never reported to the news.
Donations were never made to the family.
Nobody cried.
It wasn't recognized in school.
It's like he never lived.
One day,
your there.
and the next..
Could be.



But Not

I loved how you had the big gaps inbetween the last couple of words. It deffinatly added a dramaic sense to it. I hate the fact that this is true though, and happens most likely everyday. So sad.
