Honorable Mention

Prisoners at The Party

Like a fool
Clones walk around me
Pretending to be different
Smiles plastered on faces
All lies upon sticky sweet lips
In expressions are hidden emotions
Show off
Nothing
more
Nothing
less
None see
each Other
Through
Wrapped inside thoughts
Two trapped
Too trapped in this world,
To be perfect.
Wearing unique caution
fine
line between
Unique
Freak
Fake.
Pass me.
Notice me.
Judge me.
Forget me.
Mirror
Cracked
Clones Revealed
All lies upon sticky sweet lips
This is not a party
It is a cage.
