Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

like Emily

14 March 2014



she fringed her way



everyone else

while few

even glanced her way

oh sure, a few

would nod or smile

or say something

in their own way

but she never felt


like she fit in

with the crowd

the clicks were formed

and outsiders

were politely tolerated

but not encouraged

to be around

so she retreated

and withdrew

denied her loneliness

it wasn’t worth it

to belong

as an artificial guest

no fault no blame

no guilt no shame

she’ll simply be

like Emily

writing letters to

the world

which never wrote to me.
