Deservingly Untitled

She is swallowed in a crowd
Yet she feels
In loneliness, "aloneness"

Tears carve crevasses
down her cheeks
Night after night, her fingers break
to the sheets

Her only friend, protection
In this world of those who
"need" her, "care" for her
The nonexistent those who
want her

And time
the biggest enemy
Turns those "I cans"
Into "cants"
Dreams into nightmares

Each second a dagger,
A murder with little investigation
Tick tock
Screams the clock
Scream the silent glares

As she is expected
To be good, smart
And lets it down
As if the world cares

Self induced hatred
School induced suffocation
Hair knotted, eyes rotted
As her brain drives her
deep into the ground
