When Gravity forgets

I feel like floating in the air
Drifting aimlessly without knowing when
gravity will pull me back on solid ground

When you walk in a crowded hallway
Hearing the subtle excuse me's and sorry's
As people bump slightly with each other
Trying to pick for a pen that fell
While you are squeezing yourself in the flow
without even brushing off with the slightest touch
of fabric from someone's clothes

What does it feel like
To talk in front of everybody 
without imagining someone in the dark side of the room
shaking his head with disapproval

What does it feel like
To not care at all with strangers
I pass on by everyday
Every time an accidental eye contact is made,
it feels so unnatural;
Is it my face? 402 more words
