Me

Nobody understands her or truly cares if she is alright 
The signs are so obvious yet, nobody notices
She has given up and is refusing to fight

Not one person sees how drastically she has changed and that something is wrong 
Silently she has been crying for help
But her cries have continued going unnoticed for far too long

Time passes her by and she stopped caring at all 
Nothing seems to matter anymore
Hiding from the world staring at the wall

Nothing seems to make sense anymore
She transformed into a completely different person 
Nothing like who she was before

Questioning herself and who she really is now 
Desperate to find some hope
Yet, she doesn’t know how

Shattered hopes and crushed dreams fall on the floor 
She no longer bothers to pick them up
She doesn’t have any reason anymore

Searching for a sign to regain her faith and return her smile 
Unable to find her inner strength
Happiness has been a stranger and has been for a while

Words are scrambled making no sense at all 
Trying to describe emotions inside herself
Unable to stand on her own she begins to stumble and fall

Her tongue gets tied with every attempted word 
Constantly contradicting herself
Appearing absurd

A stranger to herself she no longer knows herself anymore
Nothing like what was believed 
Nothing like who she had been before

Appearing completely different as if wearing new skin 
Locking herself  away from the world
And too afraid to allow anyone close enough to get in

Unsure of herself; she closes her eyes so that she can’t see
Blinding herself from reality
Hiding herself  from me
