unnamed Emotion

I am Sad,
But you’ll never know.
My judgment bad.
My tears never show.

I die inside,
my tears never show.
Many a times I have lied,
but you’ll never know.

I lie broken on my bed,
crying for what you have said.
Your words don’t hurt me anymore,
but they did indeed leave me sore.

Who are you to judge?
“I am not perfect!”
I have said, yet you keep a grudge.
Your anger has not set.

Send me away!
My friends do not care.
“Stay, don’t go!” they will not say.
Nor would I stay, I would not dare.

I am Sad,
Happy has gone.
I’m left mad.
And visibly torn.

    Hi Annelien, your writing is certainly full of a range of emotions. I don't know if this is autobiographical, but if it is then this type of writing can be very cathartic. I found your first two stanzas particularly effective, loved the repetition and inversion of those two lines.

    Hi Annelien. I really felt your poem. I am just coming out of a bad patch in my life (or perhaps thats just what i am trying to convince myself) and found that writting poetry really helped- i had never done it before then and it allowed me to open up to myself
