You walk to your locker
Pushing and shoving past the swarm of teens
Grab your stuff
And turn around
You expect to see a girl sitting by the window, alone
Gazing at the sky, serene and peaceful like
But she’s not there
The bell rings
You walk away
And she fades away, gone and forgotton
Second period, you enter class and sit down
The seat next to you is empty
You used to secretly watch her doodle, fascinated
And when she was sad, she escaped the world by opening a book
The bell rings
Class starts
And she fades away, gone and forgotton
You don’t remember in middle school
You made fun of her because she was “Uncool”
She stopped showing emotion
You lost interest
The world lost interest
People like her are replaceable
Always another nerd to take her place
And as school goes on
As life goes on
She fades away
Gone and
Forgotton
