Silhouette With No Name

February 4, 2012
Why can’t I be like you?
Watching and repeating
Everything they do;
Perfect imitator,
Unnoticed as you fade,
No different in the darkness
Than any other shade.

I’m alone in the light,
The cold brilliance of day,
Unable to hide
I can’t slip away.
Can I at least be ignored
If I can’t be respected?
I think to be hated
Is worse than neglected.

I envy the way
You exist without being,
The way they look through you
Without ever seeing.
I wish I were like you,
Wish they saw me the same
As a half-faded shadow
Silhouette with no name.
