Watching People
I've been watching people,
Through my door or out the window
And they all seem so alive.
Why can't I seem that way?
With these blackened eyes,
Hiding in the shadows, I watch,
Waiting for some sign of life
In myself and stop, please stop,
Me from falling- I can't help it.
I've been watching people
Crying out as they come near
But they just ignore my wounds,
Why won't someone help me up?
Stop me from bleeding inside
And hold me until the pain leaves.
I won't kill the bird, if,
If you can release it from its cage.
