Blast from the Past - 1

Well, I found this book that I wrote some poetry in from a couple of years ago. I read the poems again and I thought that I'd ask you guys what you thought of, well, the change in style from then and how I write now. It's wierd, but I know what I was going through then, and although it isn't too different now, I think that the thinking has changed. Crazy, it's like charting your own evolution through the words that you write...or spew forth. In fact, there are people I know who tell me that I'm the same, while others tell me that I've changed and all that. Still, there are those select few who bring up things that I've said in the past, and I have been shown examples of some of the writing I did back then...mostly of a personal nature...and I was actually shocked. I guess I really carried forward the 'nonchalant malayalee' act to such an extent that I ended up hurting people. I'm sorry...and, unfortunately, I still do it from time to time. I'm not a bad guy. I just need to be more aware of the impact of my actions. Well, before this train heads south for the winter, I just want you guys to tell me what you think. This is the first in a little series of poems that I will put up...

3/4?

Standing there
All by yourself.
People around you,
Just don't care.
The hand you hold,
Is your own.
In a crowd,
But all alone.

Can I help you?
Do you have a minute?
Is there something I can do?
Or would you rather forget it?

Looking down
At the marble floor.
Excuse me ma'am.
Are you new in town?
Making friends,
For the comfort it brings.
A joy all its own.
A little time to spend.

Can I help you?
Do you need a hand?
Is there something I can say?
Can you wait till the end?
