Published: July 2012

she sits alone,
and nobody sees,
the tears that fall,
unknown she wishes to be.
nobody understands,
or feels her pain,
nobody sees,
the cuts along her veins.
she has no one to turn to,
no one who cares,
sure she has friends,
but they're never there.
the doctors say depression,
her father says grief,
but she looks down,
hiding her disbelief.
her baggy sweaters,
show no truth,
her long sleeves,
cover her youth.
that girl is dying,
that girl is alone,
that girl is tired,
none of her pain is shown.

I can really relate to this. I am an orphan (lost my parents at 3 months). Don't even have any memories of them. At times I feel so sad. I am a loner, and I sit in the dark at night and cry myself to sleep. No one understands my pain, but through writing my feelings down, I am able to go through the day.

I really love this. It's how I feel...... I hide everything but it's not like anyone really cares anyway....... When I'm depressed, which is often, I read and write poems.....this explains my situation very well.
