The Earth That Never Saw Me

December 12, 2008
By Tessa Lawler, South Elgin, IL

I lay numb upon my bed.
Insanity surrounding me,
Slowly making its way to my mind.
My hands become angry fists.
Flying around the room,
Breaking innocent things.
I'm dying for a breathe.
I'm dying to be normal.
I'm dying for someone to see me.
Do I have a future?
Am I meant to go on,
Living in this Hell?
I wish it wasn't too late.
I wish someone would have noticed.
I wish someone would have cared.
Soon now,
I will be entering an endless slumber.
Soon now,
I will rest in peace.
Soon now,
I will be buried beneath the Earth.
The Earth that never saw me.

I have written many things like this, but never this well. I hope you like it as much I do. :]
