"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


Why is it when your hurt,

They look away.

Why is it when your crawling,

They walk away.

Why is it when you fall,

They stand far away.

Why is it when you cry,

They laugh.

Why is it when your broken,

They decide to get help.

Why is it when your dead,

They listen.

Why is it?


The author's comments:

This poem describes the feeling that everyone has turned their backs on you and that only by being dead will they listen but there is always hope if you look in the right direction.

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
