A girl is breaking

With no words to speak 

Messing up her speech

She cries in the spotlight

She's afraid to speak...She's hit a stoplight

The stoplight shines red

Like the blood rushing to her cheeks

Once again she cannot speak

Her personality quietly dying 

She's trying to show

What's going on in her soul

But her soul is a candle burning above a rope

The ropw draws thiner and thiner

Until snap it goes

She tries to conceal The way she really feels

So she doesn't mess up her speech

When she tries to speak...

 

Dear anyone who will listen

I speak few words

Because of anxiety that whispers

In my ear

Telling me to fear 

Fear I'll be rejected

Fear of being ejected from humanity

Like a VHS you are done with

I fear of being thrown down the chute

Of giving up and losing hope

I feel as if I've been sent to decompose

The creaking of my bones

Telling me to loose all hope

This is why I dont speak 

Afraid of messing up my speech

This is really well written and I love it, there's a small misspelling in the 13th line. Keep up the amazing writing!
