don't walk away

glittering speckled flakes
falling from my face
in the sun they glisten
in the night they’re unseen
in the daylight
I turn away so
no one sees my face
at night I stand still
in the dark
breathing quietly
if at all
alone, I strum my guitar
of lamenting strings
verses floating on a puddle
of tears at my feet
some may listen to my song
but then, all walk away
I listen every morning
to my only friends
nesting upon
their arboreal lair
they never walk away
although, they can fly free
but always they come back
to greet me the next day
