Voices

Standing on the curb... talking No one there. ..walking Looks right thru you when he speaks Answers questions no one seeks He's told they aren't really there About that he doesn't even care To him they couldn't be more real Thats why it's always such a big deal No one wants him around Don't want to hear his sound When he screams at the air There's never anybody there Wish they'd just go away Somewhere far, far away He hears them speak and even sees their faces They follow along even when he goes places Doesn't understand why no one else sees The more he hears the less he believes

I wrote one very much like this one too, Scott. It's a good way to imagine this kind of person. They are such sad figures on the streets!! Good job on your first post.

Thanks Andrea. For some reason I seem to be better at writing about dark situations more than light and joyful things.
