Stick People

Stick People

A Poem by TheUnrulyWriter

He is there!

Right in front of me!

But he’s not real


She was there, too

In the window

Made me scared!

But she was a trick


So I ran off

I ran to you

But she was false

And so are you!


Am I really so alone?

That the stars must play tricks?

And form these little people?

Made out of sticks?

Unruly this is Great stuff!!
Am I really so alone

In these lines you question the Universe and why you are destined to meet and be connected with others so fake they leave you troubled. I know this can happen when your among st friends and you feel your the only one with inner deep feelings. Everyone else is so shallow and fake. Nice job.

This is very good! I like the idea of panic and how it's conveyed with the punctuation, as though they are surprised everything is 'fake'. Well written.
