Random Poem:

xxx cracks gone unnoticed

repeated stumbling
the cracks in the sidewalk ignored
i pick up the pace and don't look back
and stumble again
tripping over your feet
they appear unnoticed
i tell myself again not to look over my shoulder
and i trip again
once more an unignorable pain
i squint but don't look back
i turn my head so it appears neglected
and i fall
i fall and everyone knows
flushed is my face i don't stand up
i sit there and they are ignored
GO AWAY! and i cry again
the cracks were never unnoticed
