The Wallflower

A silhouette in the corner.

A shadow on the wall.

She can’t help but wonder

Is she noticed at all?


Gray outlines descend onto the floor,

while spotlights gather center stage.

He whispers, “It is you I adore.”

For he has seen her life scripted on every page.


He asks her for a dance.

Then everyone else observes

the girl they disregarded with a glance

Is the one His attention deserves.
