Solitary Crowd

Solitary Crowd

written by: Angel Edwards

 

Walking slowly through a crowd
It’s like standing still in time
All around is motion
movement dancing
When you are apart from it
all alone
Startles you when
people smile in your direction
happy couples kissing

Do you see yourself
as a ghost invisible
impermeable to the emotions
frills
feelings
the crowd
solitary among a herd
unobserved
safely solo
