Just A Dream

The rain began to fall like the tears rolling down her face.
Each day she opens her eyes, reality sets in place.
She puts on a smile and pretends to be brave
But inside are hugs of comfort she constantly craves.

Her head starts pounding, her body feels sore.
She hates this feeling, she felt this way before.
She wants to pull out her hair n scream out aloud.
Her skies are turned grey n covered with dark clouds 

Nobody seems to understand the way she really feels
Different emotions everyday, she’s finds it hard to conceal. 
Happy people around her, yet she cant seem to find her smile. 
She’s tired of pretending and starts to feel hostile.

She feels disused by her family n friends
Her reality is like a constant nightmare that never ends. 
Deep into thought she lays curled up on her bed.
The feeling of loneliness is one she mostly dreads

At this point in time, she realizes she’s on her own.
Even though surrounded by people she would still feel alone.
She was racking her mind tryna figure out what life’s about
She could feel no purpose, but only self doubt...

Her friends have changed, yet she remains the same
Even when around them, she feels so small an inane. 
Everyday seems similar and she wishes her life would end.
As she gets older she notices there are less people on which she can depend.

Something’s lost inside her; she’s losing her strength each day
The only thought in her head is escaping to a place far away. 
Somewhere where she will be happy and start to smile again
Starting her life afresh and forgetting all this pain. 

As she gently closes her eyes and starts to fall asleep
She dreams of this place where she will no more weep.
For her dreams are the only place she feels vibrant and free.
Her only way of escaping Life, this harsh reality…

    Loneliness can be so cruel. Yet we must strive to find healing in the goodness around us. Thanks for sharing, Sasha.
