Its difficult to walk that straight line

Even more difficult to blend in

She can’t meet your eyes

She’s always looking in

She’s tired of fighting

She’s tired of pretending

She wants to crawl in bed

and dream

she doesn’t know how to be like you

You live in that bright world of comfort

while she lives in that dark cave of her mind

Somewhere she’s comfortable

Somewhere she’s wanted

Somewhere full of discontent and demons

She wants to hold your hand

even if she can’t feel it or see it when you have taken hold

guiding her through this unfamiliar maze

she loves you more for it

she loves that you try

she will try too

She can’t fail

she can’t die when she looks in your eyes


She loves you and you are worth the fear.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
