The Realization

As days and nights pass
It seems that mine don’t go as fast
I sit in the darkness while my heartaches
With everything in my life that’s at stake
When I’m in the darkness I feel alive
When I’m out in the world I feel like a ghost
Just standing there
Watching the world pass me by
In the darkness I’m visible

Oppose to not being in it and being
Invisible
Remembering the time blood ran down my arm
I did myself so much harm
Here sitting on the far corner of my bed

My window wide open
I’m staring out at my shed
Hearing the whispers of the night
I feel safe
I feel free
I am me
Here and only here
This is the only place where I truly find myself at peace
I am comforted by the chills that run down my back
Thinking of it as hug from those who have passed
And the whispers are telling me that it’s all right
Giving me a shoulder to cry on
This is my happy place
And soon it will be taken away
So far nothing beats it
Out in the world I am misunderstood
Here I am the one who makes the most sense
Here I am not bullied by those in my presence
Here I am treated like a queen
So why can’t the world realize and accept me as a
Human being
