Warning: loneliness

Feels like lonely
is my only
option
when I feel
more lonely
every day
surrounded
by people,
I fade away
into the background
of every scene
— I don’t think they
ever
meant to cast me
as the lead,
meant to be an extra
in every episode;
the director’s
gonna freak
when they see me
at the back
of every shot.
Guess even the
acting gods forgot
what I was
there
for

A woman walking away as her shadow trails behind her
Sunglasses on a wall display
A castle keep with a Welsh flag (red dragon with white sky and green grass background) flying overhead
