I Displayed My Heart

I displayed my heart

In a storefront window

No one was buying

They were on their phones

As they scuttled by

I feel sad and lonely

Even children turned away

Am I that ugly

Am I that undesirable

Everyone was isolated

And no one was looking

No I’m not begging

Just standing in silence

No tears on my cheeks

But cannot fake happiness

Just wanting to be loved

And be understood
