I live my life
from the sidelines
Little wallflower
standing in the corner
watching everyone
party and enjoy

Longing to be a part
but living happily

Long before
the lights are out and party’s over
I slink from the room
avoiding even the casual contact
of the up-bound elevator
opting instead
for the solitude and exercise
of the nine floor stair climb.
