someone someone alone

                New boy in new school,

                I saw him from a distance,

                Not very talkative,

                Had a nice personality,

                Nobody talked him,

                They left him alone,

                Even though he didn’t want to be,

                I watched him all day long,

                And for the next couple of days,

                He ate lunch in the stairs,

                He didn’t have any friends,

                He wasn’t a bright student,

                Loneliness swallowed him one day,

                Seeing him crying,

                Compelled me to go to him,

                Putting my hand on his shoulder,

                I helped him calm down,

                But after a few minutes,

                He left.

                Making me realize,

                I wasn’t any different from the others.

    Very sad poem, would like to work on it as a fusion poem; it has lots of promise if rewritten; I would like to do so if you don't mind. And then we could kick it back and forth and when finished you can post it as fusion. BWP... James... I like the realization in this work; because the realization is what makes this poem work.
