What It's Like

Do you know what it’s like to feel
Sorrow?
Real sorrow,
Inexplicable sorrow,
Sorrow that makes you feel more lonely
Than you’ve ever been.

Do you know what it’s like to be
Alone?
Helplessly alone,
Tragically alone,
Alone to the point
Where you feel lost.

Do you know what it’s like to be
Lost?
Truly lost,
Hopelessly lost,
Lost so much
That it’s almost painful.

Do you know what it’s like to feel
Pain?
Crushing pain,
Excruciating pain,
Pain that makes you to
Cry yourself to sleep.

Do you know what it’s like to
Cry?
Smothering tears,
Suffocating tears,
Tears that bring only comfort of knowing
that you are still able to cry.

Do you know what it’s like to want it all,
And at the same time
Want nothing,
Nothing more than the hope
That this will all someday make sense.

Do you know what it’s like

To be me?

also, about the actually writing and language/structure, I love how each stanza is connected to what you said in the previous one.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. No, I don't go to the high school, but I will be next year. Do you go there?
