Invisible veil

Invisible veil

A Poem by Lonti Buzzfern

This is just a short poem about a girl's distress as she reaches out to someone, anyone who'll take her hand, and ask them to change her. She tells him that she's envious of him and people like him.


You’re so different, so am I,

I wish to be there on your streetlights.

You care for the small things,

Which others just tend to ignore.

You know the feeling to be drowned in the overflowing waters


I want to swim,

In my puddle of distress,

The problem remains I don't know how.

Teach me to live life fully,

Because you know I am a dull drab.

I live the life of someone else,

Who’s not exactly me but a camouflage .


I envy the happy-go-luck humans,

Who live as if it’s their last day?

I wish I was like them,

To know the feeling of being free,

I am free to be exact,

Not bound by a visible chain, 

But I'm bound by the invisible veil.

Is veal (deer meat) the right word? Maybe veil or zeal?
