Favorite Quote:
"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference." -Elie Wiesel

flocks of grey people always pass my view.

They pause to stare but never say hello.

tired of frayed dreams, they want something new.

I fill their emptiness, from head to toe.


Denim shorts, leather jackets, or silk dresses,

They reinvent me in turn with each season.

Standing here with a void no one addresses,

I search for a real purpose, a reason.


A glass isolates me from the outside;

I envy the tulips across the street,

or the young finches sitting on branches with pride;

They change while my life is on repeat.


For my audience, I'm the idol with no error,

But I am just a mannequin in the mirror.
