Transparency

Introverted thoughts running through my brain
Observing limpid smiles and words that make me cringe

Flipping through a thesaurus looking for synonyms of yourself
Uncertainty clogs your mind, flush it out with small talk

You sit in the back begging for approval
Feeding off the laughter of acquaintances to mend your paper heart

Eraser marks and scribbles fill a page that isn't even yours
Rip out a new page and make it your own

Your image projects on a whiteboard for everyone to see
I see right through you like a transparency
