Cold August Night - Poem by Ashley Kolakowski
Junior in high school,
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.
