Only a girl
I am only a girl
and SHE doesn't understand.
People only see what they want
to see. And I'm barely
There are more fish in the sea,
I know.
But I am the minnow.
I try so hard
no one notices.
I feel as if I'm fading into the dark.
What did this girl do wrong?
I try to keep the tears inside.
but no one sees me bleeding
There's a hole I can't patch up.
I know it's high school.
I know it will be hard.
I know there will be haters and
I know I should be confident.
But how can I?
What did I do wrong?
In the movies
and fairytales and TV
shows and plays
The unlikely character or
the unpopular one or
ones like me
always get the guy or
some kind of prize.
I only wish I was in those
If they'd only give me
a chance,
one chance,
one wish,
or two.
I could be popular.
I could be flawless
I could get the guy.
But it's not like that.
I am a lone flower
in a field of weeds
Longing to be great.
What did I do wrong?
I know it's only high school.
But what did I
ever do wrong?

It's dark in here.
Where is the light?
Why has it abandoned me?
I'm afraid of the dark.
Can you hear me?
I'm calling out for you.
My throat is raw, and my voice is hoarse,
but I'll keep calling.
Why is it so cold?
Can I have a blanket?
Can you hear me?
I'm afraid of the dark.
How long have I been here?
I think I used to look for a way out,
But now I'm so tired.
I'm so tired.
Is anyone there?
Am I here?
I'm afraid of the dark.
What if I am the dark?
I look at my hand, and I see darkness.
I look down at my feet, and I see darkness.
I look inside, and I see darkness.
Where does the darkness end?
Where do I begin?
Are we one?
Please answer me.
It's dark in here.
Where is the light?
Why has it abandoned us?
We are afraid of the dark.
We are the dark.

Night is my enemy.
At night, there is no shield. I am left with myself and the only thing night offers: darkness. And in this darkness, I am forced to see what I try to ignore. In the darkness all my pain, all my regrets and sins and turmoil are at eye level. In the day it is easy to look away. To turn from them and find company in another. To allow music or literature to hide myself from it all.
I can't hide in the night. What is there to hide behind except darkness? The very thing that shows me what I fear: who I am.
At night, I'm given darkness. The gift I don't want, the gift I fear. There's nothing to hide behind.

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in listening/sharing my music?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!

Thanksfor the fave, I'll admit the poem was made when I had a girlfriend, but we broke up in a more reasonable fashion that isn't normally expected. Either way, what did you like about the poem?
