I "Won"

I "Won"

A Poem by Heather

Winning,
It’s supposed to feel good,
To fool us into thinking that we are worthy of something more.
The reality is, I’m not.
Barely scraping by shouldn’t count,
“Congrats”
The truth is, I just want to get out.

To be rid of this scenery, 
These problems,
These fears
Because maybe starting over,
Maybe it won’t leave me in tears.

But the fear is beyond that,
I know the pain won’t go away.
But no one will know me,
No one will care if I’m hurt, will ask me to stay.

For maybe being invisible isn’t so bad,
As it doesn’t just leave space to be sad,
It welcomes the solitude, with more passion.
Like a love that is never ending
Driven with such power, it never has to ration.

Thank you :)
A terrible feeling, I know. Who hasn't felt like this? I wonder all the time "If I can just start over". I feel for you. Invisible isn't so bad, but it is lonely.
