People used to love me.
There used to be something interesting or
exciting in my darkness
or maybe it was just that we were all younger then
and they didnt know what I knew
which was that the world is a horrific place to be
and so I must have seemed wise and new,

but now I feel so alone
and it hurts
and I can't do this anymore
and I look around for a friendly face
and when I can't find one I wonder
who the hell I was looking for anyway

because I wither in agony
and half of it is loss, of her,
and half of it, is knowing
that no one will ever wither
from the loss
of me.

This is almost exactly how my life has played out over the time of me being in school... from kindergarten to high school, this explains everything.

This poem is great. I love it, and I would say something comforting now, but everyone else already has soooooooo, I'm sorry for not being able to think up anything!

I especially liked "I look around for a friendly face
and when I can't find one I wonder
who the hell I was looking for anyway"
That. Was. Awesome.

You are very loved, despite the heartbreak. It has taken myself a long time to move steps beyond the shell of my old self, but I am not sorry for what I experienced, as it made me who I am today. A strong and determined woman. :heart:

That's called "growing up". We take different paths as we age.
