People Disappearing into Walls

 

I live with

people who

disappear

into walls

Always

never saying

a word

rarely leaving

evidence of

their existence

Just the persistent

silence

that echoes

across the hall

Why really

bother

living

at all?

I ask to

no one

in particular

How peculiar

and lonely

feeling like

you’re

not here

when you are

feeling like

I’m the only

one

who cares

feeling like

I’m talking to

thin

air

Where are you

ghost-like residents

who claim

they live here?

No where

to be

seen

at

all
