Yours and MineWe never got those towels his and hers. Those matching pajamas. Our pillows didnt even match, which I know irked you. Sometimes I wonder if you woke up every morning and immediately felt cross because of my pillow, and yours. Yours and mine.
But if you did, you never showed it. You woke me with a kiss and a smile more radiant than the sunrise that we never saw, nestled deeply as we were in the jungle of apartment buildings. Perhaps, then, you were cross about many things. The way I never put away my shoes, so you always were tripping over them; the way I didnt replace the toilet paper when we ran out; the way I

Rain BootJon? she called down the stairs, without looking away from the mirror she leaned towards, carefully applying mascara to neatly curled lashes. She had one stocking on, and a pair of sensible black pumps were tossed haphazardly on the counter, dangerously close to the curling iron. Jon, is it still raining?

Wallflower... Laughter and fast paced music fill this huge room. The night is young; everyone is moving their bodies to the beat...but not for long. A new mood has set upon the place. A slow tempo replaces the up-beat one; the room darkens. Nervously, boys walk over the invisible line that seperates the genders, extending their hands to the girls in hopes for a dance. The girls happily place their own hands in the boys, smiles spreading across their faces. The pairs glide across the floor, gently twirling away, leaving me as a wallflower. By now I am used to this sad feeling of utter sorrow. The feeling of neglect and the feeling of being unloved. I tWallflower...6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

all laughing and smiling
One person sitting in a corner
Quietly glancing at the crowd
They only brushed past her
Not giving a second glance
They all went back to thier fun
All of them, extravagent as roses
Everyone of them outshined her
She hung her head and left the room
Why was she here? She didn't belong here
Not among these roses or anyone radiant
She was only a weed among roses, an outsider
She could only disappear, and no one would care
On the stoop she sat as her head rose
Staring intently at the moon, as a smile graced her lips
She felt peaceful, just her and the moon

The place is almost deserted and that only serves to widen the gulf between the Wallflower and those friends. They laugh and talk about things the Wallflower doesn't follow, a quick hug and a hello is all they have to spare.
The Wallflower knows that coming was a bad idea. It had not seemed smart even when the idea was first proposed but the need to go out and socialize had been too strong. Now, the Wallflower would have rathered stay home and read - it would be less distressing than the aching loneliness that tighten
