In the mirror, there she is.
Her eyes so lost, so blue,
hold the question,
who are you?
She does a smile,
it looks so fake.
Another painful day,
she cannot take.
Forced laughs, questioning eyes,
she never thought she’d say so many lies.
What’s wrong?
She doesn’t even know.
All she knows is that
she feels a hole.
Growing, and never receding,
slowly it takes over her heart.
And even though she tries to think back,
she can’t remember the start.
Lost and confused,
she tries to find her way
back to the hidden path,
before she breaks down and runs away.
She hasn’t told a soul,
the pain she feels,
because she knows,
they’ll think it isn’t real.
All she wants is to
feel happy and beautiful.
But it’s so hard to feel this way
without feeling regretful.
And, as hard it is to admit,
this girl, who is filled with fear,
is myself, staring back at me,
in the mirror.

This is how I feel, some days are better then others, but I just wish I could tell someone without them judging me or calling me emo... So, that's why I posted it on here.

Powerful emotions, but the rhythm was off in some places.

I'm a loser and I love to lose. Each time I lose its different, it teaches me something else... but winning loses its glamour after the first few times. so I love to lose

We are all emotional some just contain it better than others. I read something interesting the other day boys are more emotional than girls they just learn to control it at a younge age. So that hole in you makes so much sense because you havent found whats missing. I've seen so many things and it feels as the hole gets bigger but then some days it soesnt exist. So dont worry about the world they just dont want to admit to there own holes!
