"When there is snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds."

The bell rings,
Texbooks slam shut
and doors open
to floods of crowded people.

I jump in,
Not worring about my landing.
Now I'm lost within a pool of sounds.

The talking all around me,
I drown it out.
The shuffling of feet,
it fades away.
The slamming of lockers,
is only a disant memory.

I quietly walk
amungst the noise.
Invisible to all,
espically you.
Maybe you'll see me one day.
But I fear that day is far from now.

Untill then,
I will forever be
the shadow behind you,
silently lost in
a sea of hallyways.

"The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one."
"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light."

This is so true! I was going to write a poem about this exact thing! You basically wrote down exactly how it feels to walk through the hallways for me!
