Just a Space

I know I’m unwanted.
I wish I didn’t exist.
I wish I could close my eyes and
     I’m just a space!
I have no feelings, no heart.
I’m just an empty body….
Filled with space.
     People walk all over me,
Like I’m the dirt on the rug.
Pay no attention to me…..
For I am not there.
     People everywhere take advantage of me.
 So just walk right through me…
For I am nothing but air!
Walk right by me,
    I don’t care!
So pay no attention to me…
For I am not there.
I am nothing!
   I’m not a human nor animal.
I’m not somebody!
For I am….
                   Just a Space
