Forlorn are the ones
Who wanted to be different
Only to stand apart
So that they were ushered in
Not left to find their own way.
Only different to be attractive.
Only different to be a safe novelty.
One that catches the eye,
But is bought all the same.
Not left on the shelf as
Just too raw…too bizarre…maybe broken…maybe just too wrong.
it lies there listless.
Realizing it wanted the very same things…
From someone who could understand.
