    You know you're close to being a ghost

    when your closest friends that you've known for years don't talk to you. But you know that you're a ghost when even your family doesn't talk to you. Times like these, I just wanna activate plan b and disappear. Zero contact, fake ids, really be a ghost.

    A Phantom

    This is kind of a venting thing sooo this may sound a little self absorbed and offend a few people. If so, I'm sorry in advance.Now, I've been on EP for a while now.  And I've seen the kind of people on here.  Of course most of us are depressed, because of the purpose of this...

    Slipping through the crowd, Rarely noticed among the people, A moments passed and forgotten, A ghost among people.

    As I walk through the crowds, I get pushed, bumped into, told to move. No one notices me. No one says sorry. I'm invisible. I try to speak, but no one hears me.  No one even knows my name. They just forget it. They forget me. They forget that I'm even here. I feel broken...

    Strange Feeling

    I talk so load and still nobody hears me! Sometimes people just run into me, as if they don't see me, I am rarely included in a conversation that's going on around me, I have to repeat myself all the time, But I can't pass through walls! If only I could do that as...

    I've always been somewhat invisible. Nobody ever remembers my name. I'm always "someone's friend" or "that big girl with the curls and glasses, I can't remember her name for the life of me! You know who I mean, right?" When I was young I had a huge issue with this, and was often...

    I'm Shy

    I'm shy, Too scared, I never speak first, Hard in a small town, In a city, Among the crowds, You can hide, Even if, You say nothin', You fell apart. That's why, if I had my way - I'd live in a big city like I used to. If I came into a jackpot, that's what I'd do.

    It's pretty comical to me sometimes

    when I walk around school completely unnoticed by anyone. I see couples pass me by and I say to myself "hmm, must be nice.."

    I am the invisible, the unseen but,

    every night I become the thing I hate, let the serpent bit as oft as it please, I'm only so temporary, I'm more as much as a sickness or disease.

    I always walk around purposefully

    so most people don't notice me because they are driven to doing something too. It'd a way of life here in England! Everybody is the same, driven to acquire relentlessly. Striving for the sake of striving. I need to radically slow up so I notice more.

    I Always Just Watch People Go About Their Day

    I am always the ghost in my social cliques...They fear me yet treat me like family. I sit and watch them and i love my friends even if they shun me for the others. I just want attention from them.

    You know you are one

    when you are in a group but no one is talking to you. You know you are one when you are at a family reunion, or any reunion, and no one talks to you or asked about you. You know you are one when you can walk past someone and no one noticed you. You know you are one when you...
