lost and forgotten souls

We are all lost and forgotten
We all crumble and break in 
Even and yet
Disproportionate ways
We mainly 
Set out to 
Tread wisely 
With shaky steps 
And we all want a
Bit of privacy 
As long as it’s hidden 
By noise 
Until it’s so 
Noisy and 
It’s time to complain 
Short steps 
With long legs 
Are rarely 
And we’re all 
Shouting at the mirror
Expecting it to
Surprised and 
When it doesn’t 
But it shattered 
Long before
We decided to look 
We were just so busy 
Looking elsewhere 
And pretending
It was

Fabulous poem T W . I love these poems that are considerate in their process, making the reader think about what is being said rather than just a random bunch of words.
Nice one
