"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before." -Edgar Allan Poe

They talk and laugh
hurting her is so much fun.

They speak those
poisonous lies,
with high hopes
of making her cry.

But still she
stays strong,
but still she
fights on.

They pick at her,
they laugh, and
they mock

but her smile
never falters.

She is strong,
she is alone.

They don't know,
she cries hours on end.

They don't know,
she is broken inside.


Her life is falling apart
but still she smiles,
so they don't know she cries.

The author's comments:
I wrote this basically because I get made fun of a lot because of my style, my weight (although I am only 110lbs which is light for my age), and taste of music. Usually I am strong when it comes to the remarks because I am happy with myself now, but sometimes they can get to me.
