Shadows

Seeing you
Standing there
Whispers pass back and forth

I move on
Head held high
Ignore the hushed words and glances
Of things long out of my control

You turn towards me
And smile
Maybe apologetically
And as I consider whether or not to return the strange gesture
Someone calls your name

You turn away
In response
And don’t bother to look back

I’m no longer a person
Just a name in the shadows used for entertainment
When there are no better topics to delight upon
