Observations of The Urban Spaceman

The darkness swells around you
It fills your heart and mind
Beneath your skin, you burn with fever
Stung by words unkind

You try to rise above it all
To take the higher ground
But insults drag you back below
Where silence stifles sound

They talk in whispers behind your back
Cruelly rumours spread
Ignoring them just doesn’t work
They breed inside your head

The bully’s power comes from meanness
The need to cause a frown
For the weak who cannot raise themselves
Put everyone else down
