She Screams

She Screams

A Poem by ClaireBear

About a lost girl who's made many mistakes

She looks at her reflection
She can only see the rejection
Of all that have broken
Her heart.

She Screams in the night
She has given up the fight
And now she has
Fallen apart.

She is a slowly dying flame
She will never the the same
And she can never,
Ever restart.

For this girl does not cry
Only can she sigh
Because it was she who was
Not smart.

And now I hope you see,
After thinking thoroughly
That this girl is not you
But me.

Thanks a lot for all those who haven't been very kind to me in this past year. And that's many, many people. You know who you are.

Oh my... I especially love the first two stanzas, because I feel like I can relate... It's such an awful feeling when you feel everyone's rejection weighing you down, you feel like Atlas.

The emotion in the words grab the throat of the reader and dont let go until the final word. Well done, a well written piece.

Outstandingly written for such a young poet. This piece is something that we have, probably, all felt at some point in time and you express it so well. I hope that you plan on being a vet and a poet. Keep writing!
