Author's Note: This was a poem written by Catrina Sable, a good friend of mine, and myself. Enjoy!


Two girls that feel alone

Lost in their head

Replaying the battles,

Hearing the never ending screams,

Reopening old wounds, creating them anew 

Forever apart 

Two shattered hearts.


Two girls once happy

Wear a mask to hide the scars

Build a wall to hide the pain

Created by an ignorant world.

Their pain in vain,

For they've been told that what they feel is wrong,

That they're just searching for attention,

So they pretend that nothing is wrong.

They buried their feelings under lies

To see each other's teary eyes.


Opening themselves up,

For they have lost their trust

No one can understand them

Can they even understand themselves?

The jumbled mess inside their head 

Where they wonder if they'd be better off dead.

Would anyone miss them if they were gone?


Perhapse they'd miss each other, families would mourn,

But perhaps not

The world would just move on.

Their families would forget,

If not they'd live with regret.

Hurting the only people who care.

Pushing them away, because they feel like a burden.

Building up walls to shield themselves 

From prying eyes, and preying minds.

They hide their pain.


Alone in the shadows of their minds

The monsters come out to play.

Laughing or crying to them it's all the same.

It is a twisted dance in the dark.
