Favorite Quote:
"Happiness can be found even through the darkest of the night. But only if one remembers to turn on the light." - Albus Dumbledore


The salty tears run down my cheeks
And into the soft material of my pillowcase.
The surge of emotions that hits me is overwhelming
That I just feel nothing anymore.
The mirror on my wall shows me my reflection and I stare back.
I stare back at a stranger. One that I do not know.
She wasn’t me.
She was a girl who didn’t live a life of her own.
Her soul was living, but her heart wasn’t.
She was a mere image of who I was.
She was me. Nothing more than a shadow in the light.
 


The author's comments:

Sometimes it's hard to have to deal with problems each and everyday. When it all becomes too much we tend to look in the mirror and see a mere shawdow of who we used to be. This poem is to remind everyone out there who is suffering from similar things that there are other people who share the same problems.
