The Untouchable

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

I am the crazy old cat lady that lives all alone

I am the loner at school who no one really knows

I am the bookworm the weirdo the freak

I am the creep looking out my window

trying to catch a glimpse of passersby on the street

I am the teacher's pet the quiet one, the shy one

I am the outsider, with a magnifying glass...

Observing, yearning, learning...

Through the looking glass

I am the geek, the nerd, the loser

Trying to fit in but utterly losing

I am the enigma (ha), the wallflower, the maiden

Looking for that someone, who understands--Could it be?

You?--No

That's wishful thinking on my behalf

To believe you are my better half

To believe I have a better half!

For I am the introverted extrovert

No sticks and stones but

Words

Trying to learn--to comprehend

The lesson of life and

Utterly failing, left behind

I know what they say:

"Out of sight

Out of mind"

But I am the pariah, the misfit,

The Untouchable--who sees all

And what most never see, yet

I am human above all

Longing to Be

You're describing an outsider, a steppenwolf, a writer.

True, but I am also describing myself. :)
