A Girl


A girl
Lonely and forgotten
Perhaps
Never known

A pretty face
Unknown name
Pushed around
And rumored about

A girl
Lonely and forgotten
Perhaps
Never loved

Arms scarred
Forever tattooed
Holes in her heart
Forever unpatched

A girl
Lonely and forgotten
Perhaps
Never thought herself as pretty

Nails done
In black
Hair did
To cover her face

A girl
Lonely and forgotten
Perhaps
Never happy


Deep blue eyes
Looks like a river
She’ll drown
In the flood

A girl
Lonely and forgotten
Perhaps
Never befriended

She is quiet
Never talks
Only cries
As she is passed by

A girl
Lonely and forgotten
Perhaps
Never to live

She is unwanted
She can see
She takes the hint
And her life...

    : ( That was so sad. Are these really your feelings, or are they written about someone else? If it is about you, you are definitely more than you say you are, cuz you are a very good writer. I wrote a similar poem called 'she could have been the best... this world's ever seen' about a girl I knew who was a lot like the girl you described. I hope things start looking up. (Report) Reply
