A Poem by Cheyenne

She hides her face in her hair

and walks down the hallway.

She shies away from everyone.

She looks down at the floor.


Whispers float around her.

Eyeballs pierce into her

as everyone stares at her walking by.


She pushes the paper on her desk

away from herself,

and just sits there.



People say that she’s just too shy.

That she abandoned her friends for the school quarterback.

But now he’s gone,

and she’s all alone.


They don’t know the real story.

They don’t know what really happened to her

after the Homecoming dance.


No one knows how he drove her to his house,

put her on his bed and locked the door.

No one was there to see her stripped down to nothing

or to hear her piercing screams.


Everybody just says he got into a fight.

That’s how he obtained that black eye.

But she knows.

She knows all about how she kicked and punched frantically,

crying out desperately for him to stop.


Now, there she sits.


She knows she can’t tell anyone.

No one at all.


The words are trapped inside her,

waiting to escape,

but never getting the chance.

! At the beginning I was beginning to think it was mediocre but I continued to read because I was hoping there was potential at the end. And boy was there! The ending was something I wasn't really expecting. I though it'd be something like her family ignores her or something. Not that families ignoring a child isn't bad because it is. But I really liked this :)
