Do You Understand?


Surrounded by people
walking, talking, passing by
Brushing past me as I stand,
Frozen still, as if in time.
invisible to this world alone.

That is why I left today,
went back to yesterday.
Locked away to a place unseen.

Then...stopping, talking, seeing me!
a world of whimsical laughter
I'm not alone...?
here I am safe and loved
Somebody here, yet...nobody there.

how strange it seems to them.
They don't get it, no!
not at all.
why I hide behind the wall,

hidden away, safe and sound.
I'm somebody, noticed and talked to.
They don't pass me by!
Out there..outside...I'm surrounded
Surrounded...yet alone.
