-Buddha.


She is their doll
Their slave.
She is a mirror image of their motions
And follows them around like a hungry dog.
She hides under her thick mask of makeup and forced smiles.
But it is the girl inside
That was once my true best friend.
Now she’s at the other end of the cafeteria
Sitting beside the queen of the kingdom.
A cruel-hearted witch in designer’s clothing.
I on the other hand
Live in the land of the wandering minstrels and scholars
Our noses forever buried in books
Our premises overflowing with laughter.
But
I can see that look of longing when she spots me giggling along
To something that I actually find funny.
I can see that gleam of regret
When she notices how at ease we are at our lunch table.
And I can see that blush of shame
When we lock eyes for a quick moment.
Even though I don’t forgive the girl who snickers at me in the halls
I forgive the girl inside.

Very relatable! The way friendships seem to fall apart, and the person isn't the one you used to know. I also really like the title because at first glance, you'd think it's about you. Good job! I like the descriptions.

Amazing! This is my favorite piece from you so far:) I can totally relate to it and the metaphors are my favorite part. Very clever.

Wow! This is really good and I loved the way you used metaphor and similes to make it unique (that would be the english teacher way of describing why I like it). The me way of describing why I liked is is just that it is very visceral and emotional, and very relatable. Great job!

I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality. ~H.A. Overstreet

I only comment on stuff that I find relevant to my life, but I think this is something A lot of people can relate to. Chech out my work please :)
