Blackened World

December 18, 2008
By Emily Folsom, Auburn, ME

I stand
On the corner of doubt
In the shadows
Of all who I love
Always second
Never letting fear
Pass me by

I dwell
On my insecurities
Shrugging of
The emotions that find me
Letting my heart
Shatter
Piece by piece

I live
In a world of shame
Ignoring her praise
Avoiding his compliment
Always silently wishing
To be
Someone else
