Unloved, and unwanted
downtrodden and shunned
the analogous pain fallen to deaf ears
A faceless entity in a crowd of gray
not a pink hat in sight
Too young, not old enough, too young.
The beautiful girl on the star-seeking train.
Her Two Cents
The quickest way to stir up a flurry of posts on missed connections is to offer an admonishment to someone for posting a poem. Faster than you could say “limerick haiku” responses from both sides of the aisle appear. Those in favor of poems often post additional poetry (as is this example from Ithaca, NY) and back and forth it goes… until it stops.
