Nobody Knows

May 7, 2011

All alone
No one's heartbeat aligned
With mine
No one sees inside my head
They do not understand
How I feel
How I think
What I dream
They don't get me

They say depression hurts
But me I haven't noticed
To busy listening
To the criticism
They fill me with

Nobody knows me
Not the real me
Nobody sees me
Just my merry mask

I put up a front
So no one will know
The pain I hold
Deep inside
But I want them
To see
To get how I feel
I don't want to be alone
Not anymore.

The author's comments:
I always write when I am full of mixed emotions. The only way I can figure out exactly feel, is to write poetry. I wrote this piece when my teacher sent me out of the classroom.
