Sadness is a crime (revisited)

A Poem by Face In A Crowd

Okay i deleted the old one. >:o Today I'm revisiting all my work.

She wants to be popular,
She never will be
She tells herself she's not good enough,
She tells herself if she countinues getting bullied,
Jostled and pushed,
Pushed against the lockers, Pushed on the ground.
Crying in the bathroom,
Is her only escape
She's a good girl,
Straight A student,
She's never smoked or drank,
She's very beautiful,
Inside and outside
She sits alone at lunch.
As soon as she's finished,
She gets up and tries to make it to English,
Without being caught.
Class after class, Day after day,
He tracks her down and pushes her
Time after time.
She just picks up her books,
And walks away
Mean laughs behind her echoing in her ears,
She drew a picture one day,
It had someone with closed eyes and a frown,
All it said was

"I'm crying on the inside, And nobody knows it but me."

I guess I write many multiple stories. The story I'm writing now I had the idea for and shared with my friends. They wanted to be in it so I let them in! But I drifted away from the idea. But I guess .. more..
