do i want to fit in?

i am from another time
and space
I can feel that
in my soul
not sure how to
blend in with this human race
i have not the words
to express what is true
from my heart
my words slip through the cracks
and don't quite play the part

always misunderstood
and seen as a mystery
by my own sisterhood
i know not what it is
that sets me apart
and why people tend to take all
I say straight to heart

so many times i say nothing at all
and then i am seen as
a wall flower if i am seen at all

i blend in and out
a shadow drifting by
I can easily disappear in a
blink of an eye
people than wonder how
I seem to do that
blurring in and out with
the stealth of a cat

but don't think for a moment
that i miss a single thing
i am watching and listening
to every word spoken
every gesture made
waiting for that moment
when they realize i'm around
feeling comfortable enough
to let me slip on in
becoming part of the
circle of friends
till they become unsure
of my presence again.....
