Wallflower? /poem/ ver2

you are there in the spot called ‘just there’

as if a boulder is tied to you chest
and every move you make, it pulls you back.
and the effort pounds your heart.

*

everyone’s running around wearing their hearts on their sleeves
but you, you had wrapped yours with a thick blanket tucked away.
when people around are being ‘too happy’
you cover your eyes.

out of sight out of mind.
out of sight out of mind.
out of sight out of mind.

Peek for a while and smile a bit.
But it will always end with you averting your eyes.
Because you know it’s not gonna happen to you.
because it never DID happen to you.

and that, this is what you’ll ever do
stare at the line from time to time.
consoling yourself:
at least you were spared from all
the heartbreak and disdain that comes after temporary bliss.

from behind the borders you sing,
at least, at least, at least…
