Lost in the Crowd

POEM #098

LOST IN THE CROWD

Alone with no name

You are a faceless, nameless entity.

Stony people care not for your pain.

Your scream is like a pebble in the ocean

unnoticed, unseen, unfelt.


Lost in the crowd

A silent groaning beseeches

For a Mollifying paregoric that never comes.

Screams only echo to the top of your head.

Knots battle for control of your stomach.


You speak to a patron of stone:

Having heard does not want to hear;

Having seen, does not want to see;

Having felt, does not want to feel;

Having sensed, does not want to perceive.


Like they, you become seared and stony

You see the young person beside you:

A faceless, nameless entity.

His cry is like a pebble in the sea

unnoticed, unseen, unfelt.

❝Flea23 - Whatever you do, Larry...don't ever give up on the fact that your heart and your soul tell you you're a writer. It's hard to hold on to that faith in yourself. Take that brave heart of yours and attain...be what you wish to be...be what you are. You have a lot of power in your pieces, Larry...it is Larry that writes and the Flea that plays...and laughs and giggle and plays hide and go seek. Write..Larry. I know you can. You leave kernels of truth...and rings of drama and the depth of perceptions all over the place. You are NOT lost in a crowd...in fact..you're something of a stand-out.❞
