Quill of the Mind – 2019-2020 – Monachopsis

Monachopsis*

Many opportunities pass by,
Only one is seen,
Never changing the feeling,
Alone together is bittersweet,
Counting the times it’s felt together alone,
Holding onto the hope that the feeling may change,
Once again slipping away to tears,
Problematically making friends,
Since minds akin to puzzle pieces don’t fit what they look,
It could all change in an instant,
So when will that instant come?

*The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.

– Jessica McKeon, Grade 10
