The Unheard

The Unheard

A Poem by Brooke Swej

“Deep in my heart I'm concealing things that I'm longing to say. Scared to confess what I'm feeling - frightened you'll slip away.” ~Madonna~

On the outside I am a timid girl. 
On the inside I have my snide comments. 
When I'm put right on spot, my thoughts go away and my stomach whirls. 
I was killed with torment. 
As I thought I could say this and that. 
Event though it would piss them off. 
The teacher would want to hit me with a bat. 
Even thought they'r a rip-off!
They think they're so powerful by telling us to go to the damn office. 
How would they feel if I told them to go there? 
They would look with blankness. 
Surely I wouldn't dare to say a word.  
As I could have told them, "I am wearing clothes, 
I say, "would you rather me come in naked then in pajamas? 
Or I could have said, "You're the only one who cares." 
But of course I am that shy timid girl who stays good. 
Even though my remarks are snide.
