I felt a tap upon my shoulder

So I turned

But no one

I heard a whisper sound my name

So I listened

But nothing

Nothing came

All the same

Saw a reflection of myself

So I looked

But nowhere

Held the words upon my lips

So I spoke

But no sound

Not around

Nothing found

Saw the face in the rain

And I cried

For nothing

Heard the cries of enduring pain

And I mourned

For no one

But not done

Nothing won

Saw myself


Heard myself


Felt myself


Knew that I

Had cried
