You’ll Never Know…

The asterisks are there to help clarify where every stanza ends and begins. Enjoy!

You’ll never know how alone she felt

In her room with no way out

You’ll never see the tears she cries

In this world where everyone lies

 *

She is sick and tired of screaming

Torn apart from endless nights crying

She would do anything to trade her life

To forget about cutting herself with a knife

 *

She clung on to find something more

You don’t know about the masks she wore

To hide from reality, from herself

From everybody, everyone else

 *

You’ll never know about her pain

Especially when she’s labelled insane

She held on to a string of hope

And survived walking on a tightrope

*

When life or death is a second away

Will she live another day?

Everyone thinks she is okay

Until she proclaims there is no other way

*

You’ll never know how alone she felt

In her room with no way out

You’ll never see the tears she cries

In this world where everyone lies

*

You’ll never see what she tries to hide

see what she tries to hide

she tries to hide

to hide

*

This is a poem I wrote for my English class and the topic is incredibly personal to me. Still I’d love to hear your feedback on it.
