Shipwreck (OctPoWriMo2015-Day 16)

Do you see the shipwreck over there?
Do you see the shipwreck over there?
Everyone's staring
Everyone's staring
They won't help
But they won't cover their eyes either

Maybe someone should see the damage
Maybe someone should see the damage
But no one's moving
But no one's moving
Maybe because they can't provide the bandage
Maybe because they think it's hopeless

There's smiles on some faces
There's smiles on some faces
The rest of their expressions are blank
The rest of their expressions are blank
The crowd fills the empty spaces
Yet no one moves

Now the shipwreck is sinking
And not one person is blinking
It's going down
But it's not making a sound
And everyone pretends they didn't see
They all pretend the shipwreck isn't me

Today's prompt was a paradelle poem.
