She is so special,
Yet she has not noticed.
It's the type of special that lies under the surface.
She doesn't win every competition nor catch everyone's eye,
But she has been through so much and yet she will rise.
Still trying, one pain after another.
Why can't I be like the others?"
Her heart broken from this way and that.
Nothing but herself holding her back.
It's hard to be happy when you're at war with your mind.
"Why am I like this with a soul so kind?"
She can't fall asleep.
Tears fall as she weeps.
How easy it would be to give in to defeat.
She looks to the sky, ready to beg,
Then she turns towards the mirror, holding her head.
"You are so special.
You are so brave.
We can do this together.
It is you I shall save.
I will love you forever.
You will always be.
Because you are so special,
Because you are me."
Slipping from Reality
It was over.
We were over.
It had not been said yet,
But words are meaningless when you can feel the end.
He said he loved me,
But you do not destroy the people you love.
He hugged me goodbye saying words so warm
And yet his touch felt so cold.
There is no point in holding on.
I felt my grip slipping.
I was slipping from reality;
Clasping further inside myself.
If he told me he was just being honest,
Then why does my life feel like a lie?
I could see the laughter of the people that surrounded me,
But all I could hear were the tears falling from my cheek.
I heard the crack of my heart.
The bright sun was beating down on my pale skin
But the world had never felt so dark.
A chill you will never forget.
The streets were full of faces,
But I had never felt so alone.
Me And You
At what point do I let it break me?
Everything that has happened.
Everything that won't stop.
I can't hurt like this forever.
Is it time to give up?
I closed my eyes
And planted my feet strong,
I had someone all along.
"As long as I'm here,
I will never give up.
No matter how hard,
No matter how rough.
I am here for a reason.
I promise to see it through.
We will survive together.
Just me and you."
