Everyone stares

Written by: Cat Way

They stare as if you were in costume

glare across the room

green with envy because they are hollow no guts to be found

stare at me

point your fingers in my direction

laugh

no matter how long you glance my way or criticize my ways

I will always be better than you

I do not point and frown

I don't make assumptions of you and who you are

I simply walk my way and forget I even saw you

can't you do the same?

Let me live in my own little world

full of music and freakish howls

my fanged teeth bother you?

oh dear, I‘m not sorry

oh these shoes? they are platforms, nothing you could ever wear

this hair? nothing you could do
go ahead and stare at me but I can see you shaking
