I'm shit at titles. So yet another untitled poem.


Whispering pale shapes
Flutter past, faster than thought.
Turn quickly, mindlessly
Try to identify them.
But you're too slow
You can't see them.
You can't touch them.
You can only hear them
"Useless"
"Stupid"
"Ugly"
And then, for some reason,
The worst word of all -
"Fat"
You cover your ears and
Scream to drown them out.
For a moment you're alone
You start to breathe again
You start to relax at last.
But without warning
Out of the corner of your eye
Whispering pale shapes
Flutter past, faster than thought,
Again.
