I am someone one really knows
I often wonder
...if they think they do

I hear the snowflakes
...fall lazily to the ground
I see life through them
I am full of envy
...because mine is gone

I want my life back
...the way it used to be
Once full of love, happiness,
...and dreams
Instead of pain, chaos, 
...and shattered dreams

I am someone one really knows
I often wonder
...if they think they do

I pretend to be happy
...fake smiles on my face
Inside I am bitter
...I touch emptiness everyday

I worry that I will
...never feel whole again
Never feel anything
...except the constant pain
I cry into the darkness with 
no one to wipe 
...the tears away

I am someone that one really knows
I often wonder how many
...believe they do

I understand nothing now
...although I really try
My dreams have been lost
...stolen from me
I try to pretend
...that I am okay
Fake smile on my face cover the pain

I hope someday story is told
Well after my death
...nothing but bones to hold

I wonder if they will realize
...the mistakes they have made
If they will even stop and think
...or close their eyes and walk away

I am someone that one really knows
Someday I will be no one 
Maybe then, someone will actually know me
...and me

    This is a wonderful piece of writing, I too am someone that no one knows, and it will be lie this for the rest of my life. some of us are just born to be outsiders, its a place I like to be. I never want to be a sheep. thanks for the write Kelli, it was excellent....peter
