Voiceless, Faceless, Lifeless

Silent steps, no one notices    
Echoes in a crowded place  
Voiceless, I blend in with the faces †  
A ghost among the living, unnoticed †
†  
In the throngs, I am invisible †  
A stranger in my own skin †  
No one sees me, †  
no one is able to hear my thoughts, †  
my cries within †
†  
The weight of loneliness, a constant load
Days tie together, a monotonous blend  
I am invisible, unheard, alone †  
Trapped in my own personal end †
†  
I scream for help, for someone to see †  
But the world keeps turning, indifferent
The ghost inside me, slowly fading †  
Out of sight
