I watch you walk down those dimly lit hallways


That same smile plastered on larger than life
eager for empty acknowledgments received like clockwork


Promenading like a popular in pseudo-confidence
growing paler with the fear of being transparent


Your eyes glazed over from an era of tears
held back like the feelings that brought them


Ceaselessly stoic,
I watch you walk down those dimly lit hallways


Until I turn away from my reflection in the windows.

The author's comments:

This poem has a clear meaning but still leaves room for personal interpretation, which I hope allows you to relate in some way.
Let me know what you think, and THANK YOU for reading!

With love, NL
