Without A Trace

People always leave you alone when you need someone. 

Or they bother you when you want to be left alone.

Some kind of invisibility shield is in order.

Disappear without trace. 

Reappear like you never left. 

Tap out of an unbearable situation

Tap into something unmissable 

Tune into an interesting conversation

Fade out of noisy frustration

Leave a hollow mark in your wake

The faint outline of who you were, who you tried to be, who you didn’t want to be. 

Only the dead disappear without a trace. 

This is a response to Trace. Call it a poem, freeform, rambling, whatever. I have no idea. 😂
