The Girl

Cover Image

The girl slowly
fades away as
her friends forget her,
her family ignores her,
as though she doesn't exist.
She reminded daily of all
her short comings,
her imperfections,
her insecurities.
They attack her
until they consume her.
All anyone ever sees anymore
are her faults, or so it seems
to her.
She feels their eyes on her
back as she walks down the hall
her pain on her sleeve
for everyone to see
Her eyes watch the ground
as she walks past all the people.
Afraid to make eye contact
with anyone.
Afraid to let anyone in her head
to know the cause of her pain.
