Richard Schnap- A Poem


Sometimes people just vanish
Never to be seen again

As if they’re abducted by aliens
Taken in the middle of the night

The girl you courted in high school
Disappearing without a clue

The beggar on the sidewalk each morning
Becoming just an empty space

The man with the guitar on the corner
Whose music is nowhere to be heard

The woman who’d wave as she passed you
Gone before you learned her name

But the worst is when you encounter
A friend that you thought was dead

With the same face you remember
But eyes that are light years away
