You know they’re their, right? Alternate title, The One Near the Willow
         Do you talk to them? Do you talk to the one who isn’t there? You can feel them, but you can’t see them. They are here, some where, but no one knows where, and no one is sure if they are. You believe though, you can feel them whenever you are by that willow, the one that has always been there; the one that seems to never change.
         They tell of all the things you never knew. You ask people if this knowledge is true but everyone you ask just look at you weird and stay silent. You know in your heart it must be true, there is no way it couldn’t be, right? They have seen so much, they can’t be wrong.
         One day they started telling you things that were going to happen in the future, things like how you were going to lose your friend in the town over. You told your friend immediately, but he just stared. You stopped telling him when he moved away; you never did learn wear he moved to. No one bothered to tell you. You knew you tried to tell them, so it couldn’t be your fault when he was truly gone, right?
         They recently started telling you how you were going to lose everyone soon. You made sure to tell everyone in sight, they should know that they were going to be cut short. As time went on, you found that fewer and fewer people were ever around. Eventually, you realized that you tried to tell them, but they wouldn’t listen.
         Today, you realized that no one was in the town, they had all left. You couldn’t bare to see all of friends and family gone, so you locked yourself in your house. All alone, you thought of how you might have been able to fit this, if only everyone had listened.All there was to talk to was the one you couldn’t see.
         As you finally succumb to the darkness everyone looks from the window, wishing you had listened when you were told not to listen to the one by the willow. The one no one else could hear.
