No one cared to find,
All the hurt behind her eyes.
Everyone thought she was happy,
They were blinded by her lies.
They never saw the pain,
Yet they saw the false perfection.
Secretly she craved love,
All she wanted was simple affection.
Sadly no one showed concern,
As she slipped down the drain.
She just wanted someone to care,
Yet they kept ignoring her pain.
She couldn't live with herself anymore,
So she decided to quit and fail.
One day when she was all alone,
She took a deadly cocktail.
Her friends were all stunned in shock,
It broke her family's heart.
But little did they know,
They could have prevented it from the start.
Everyone thought she had it all,
But that lie only lasted for awhile.
Her disguise no longer worked,
Without her pretty,little smile.

I feel like you were talking about me,it made me cry. You are really an amazing writer. I have read all your works and all of them are really really really amazing! But my favorite is "You and Me" It's like your telling what I am experiencing right now. Again, it made me cry.

I feel like crying because this describes exactky how I feel about myself, except I'd never be able to take my own life. You're an amazing writer.!

“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

When I first read this poem, I actually cried a bit. It reminded me of a friend who seems to be happy all of the time, but hides her sorrow behind a mask. She has been through some rough things in her life. I have been there for her and I am glad that I noticed her pain early on. The poem was well written. Keep it up.

This is a very sad poem. I think most people want to to feel loved and cared for. Mostly of all attention.

Thank u:)

Unfortunately she was a real person...the daughter of my father's best friend...In writing this poem my hope was to help others to identify when someone in their life is crying out for love and to also maybe stop someone from ending their life

Great job! That's soooooo sad! If she was a real person, and I knew them or had the chance to know them... I would care about them and help them.
