In the Corner

In the Corner

A Poem by Skylar

It's not my best poem but I thought I'd post it anyways cause why not XD


That corner of the room,

remember the one with the bleachers nearby,
remember the students dancing,
talking in a perfect rhyme,
that almost drove you crazy,
remember that empty corner,
the one you knew so well,
the one you sat in thinking this all was hell,
the way no one came up to you,
the way no one invited you,
the way people stared at you,
that corner was your friend,
the corner was your guard,
you've never trusted much,
but to the corner you shared your secrets,
in the corner you realized who you wanted to be,
but deep inside you knew the corner was only holding you back,
from ever being someone you called "me",
from ever walking to the middle of the crowd,
and just being fine with who you were,
because what you thought you were,
was not who you were going to be,
because being by your self helped you realize so much,
but being with others would have helped you realize so much more,
but you stayed in the corner,
and that's not were I want to be,
I wouldn't stay in the corner
cause I want to be free.

In a place no one cares about..

My real name isn't Skylar but I've always dreamed of having that name. I deal with two parts of my mind one which wants to be happy and the other which I show most on here that wants to kill hersel.. more..
