Girl In The Mist

Every day I walk further down the road
To what I do not know
But if rain falls, I have no shelter for I am alone

There are times when I feel
Like I am drifting away to the sky above
But you pull me back until I touch the ground.

And just when I feel that I can
Never let you go, I see a bigger picture
But I don’t let you know.

So I step away and say good-bye
I’ll look at you but I won’t cry
I’ll smile when you let go for your joy is my life.

If I keep walking, will I know where my fate lies?
If I fall, will I cry?
When you leave, will I tell you what you mean to me?

I am the girl in the mist who hides her identity.

I hold in more than you know,
And now I can hold in no more
For old wounds heal too slow

But this no one knows
For they only hear my voice and
Not the secrets that my words speak.


My face is a mask that no one sees through
Only you have listened and only you have seen
And only you know the coldness I keep within me.

Nothing I do will ever seem right
But you have fixed the broken circle in my life,
So now my mist has your sunshine.

The author's comments:
This is a poem that I hope everyone can relate to. It is about a time when you feel like you are watching your own life and feel helpless. But then you find that one friend that can see through what everyone else see. That friend is the one that sees the real you.
