As a ghost I travel the halls alone
Never talking
Mourning all I've ever lost
With eyes that gaze
To a different world
A world I wish I'd never known

For if I'd never known this world
I wouldn't be sad to find it gone
I wouldn't be drifting through life
Every day
Wishing I could cry
Alone

But I am the girl that never dies
The girl with no knowledge of grief
I am the child of reason and hardship
Emotions are foreign
To children like me

If only, if only
I wish that they were
For if that were true
I could mend
I could stop being broken
Be human once more
Never to roam halls
Again


The author's comments:
After a friend of mine graduated, it was like I didn't know what to do. My classmates said that it was like I had no emotion, and I was seriously hurt by that.

The silence isn't so bad
'Till I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly.....

I'm so glad you have grown from this, though I have loved you and your writing the whole way. I wanted to wish you happy birthday and lots of love! Stay beautiful

i really like this poem, i can feel all the emotions and if you can't cry it not your fault. People show their emotions in different ways, but you got something good out of it! (this poem!) :)
