It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all..

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind - Ghandi


You've become absorbed
Just like everyone else
You've lost all sense
Of individuality.

You've disappeared
I don't know where.
I intend to get you back,
But will I be brave enough?

You've can't live like this forever
Surely you can see that.
But we know why you hide,
Why you fake it all.

Your troubling insecurity
Will catch you up.
But you know that already,
Don't you?

But still you run.
Run away from that girl.
Hiding behind the masks and walls
You've built for yourself.

Your desparate endeavour to become
The girl you long to be.
It's not working,
Is it?

We see behind your
Lies, secrets and masks.
No
You don't fol us.

How can you live with yourself
Knowing all the people you've hurt,
All the lies you've told?
I couldn't.

Sometimes your facade slips,
And that's when I know.
Underneath it all,
You're still there.

But how long until
You start believing your own lies?
How long until
It's too late to get you back?

The fake smiles
And the hollow laugh.
That's not you.
Where have you gone?


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem just recently, after my best friend and I started drifting apart. She's been changing, and I had to get my sadness, regret and anger off my chest.

wonderful -- you've conveyed the hurt to your readers! true emotion supported by thoughts. a few of the stanzas are a little rough, but you're on your way (:

Check your messages. I'm not childish enough to do this publicly.

Don't be so hard on yourself! Your work is just as great, if not more. Everyone just has a different style of writing :) and I enjoy reading yours.

Wow. I really like this. My best friend is beginning to change too. Its like she'll do anything to be what everyone around her wants. Sometimes i wonder just how many personallities she has hiding in her...and which one's really her. You really describe your situaton well in this poem.(and mine) Keep writing! :)
