Cold August Night


Junior in high school,
Team Player,
An amazing friend,
She hides a big secret from the whole world.
She wishes she could die.
She cuts her wrist at night.
She lays in bed and cries.
Yet faces everyone with a smile on her face.
The marks stay hidden,
She lies about them.
Everyone she loved...
Turned into her enemies.
She cant take the secrets and pain anymore...
She finally gives up
Sits in her room that cold August night
Presses the blade till she dies
No one will understand,
Why she wanted to die.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
