I am in a place

I am in a place where everyone knows me 

I am in a place where no one knows me 


I sleep and eat and walk and exist 

Exist to others but not me


I smile and wave and recognize and chatter

I want to hide and say goodbye and tell them they don't matter


But who am I?


To say these words and hope for reconcile 

So I walk along with no tune no song and hold on for a while

This poem is about: 


Need to talk?
