Wallflower

shy wallflower girl

is silently observing

sense of self grows dim

no attention paid

she fades into the background

she is wallpaper

her turn to judge now

you’ll be held accountable

now these walls will talk

  3. She wouldn’t blend in with my wallpaper. Especially the bits that the cats have sharpened their claws on.

    • Ha! I don’t even have any wallpaper. I actually found that picture along with a whole series of them with girls wearing dresses made out of wallpaper. Weird but a perfect pairing for my post! 🙂
