"If you can't understand my silence, then you don't deserve my words."
"Love is like the wind, you can't always see it, but you can feel it."
"Sometimes all you need is ten seconds of insane courage."

Her words rarely tumble from
The lovely mouth that she bears
Because after much too long
She has learned that nobody cares

They shut her down with criticism
That is now all that she fears
It has sewn her lips closed
She speaks only with hot tears

Higher and higher they will rise
Those thoughts she has always carried
But deeper and deeper she pushes
In hopes they will soon be buried

She writes these thoughts on paper
Finally speaking her mind
But it is too late, far too late
These are the last words we will find.

The author's comments:
This is for a girl I saw in the hallway every day. She was always so silent, and looked like she was in so much pain. I never saw her speak, just saw her walk with her eyes glued to the floor. She did not commit suicide, but I fear that someone with those feelings would.
