"Love is a poison, but it is also the antidote."

I crawl into the shadows,
And slip between the cracks.
Unseen by the average person,
I am invisible and don’t leave tracks.

No sign that I was there,
No sign I will return.
No sign that I am here,
No sign that I was heard.

Not bothering to realize,
Or even try to dare.
Not bothering to look in my eyes,
Or even slightly care.

Though I’m hidden in the darkness,
And my life may sound horrible.
Most find my presence worthless,
But I’m glad to be invisible.

thank you! and yes, I try not to conform to the usual too much, so I'm happy you felt the last stanza really hit it (:

haha! I was beginning to think this was like every other poem about being a wallflower, than BANG! That last stanza hit! Great job! Five stars!

I can't say that I can relate to this but I can say that this is absolutely amazing. Great job! I love the rythym and use of words in this poem. Please write more poems like this. :)

Aren't we all? lol.  Loved how you ended this by showing the character's feelings about always going unnoticed- it's a stong way to end a poem!
