The Depressed Girl

That girl’s heart aches,
Her smile is fake.
The cuts sting,
Her phone rings.
She ignores
And thinks life’s a bore.
But she doesn’t know
There are people who care.
She doesn’t know
That they’ve always been there.
She’s tired of being joked at school.
She’s tired of being called a fool.
She’s ready to pull out the knife,
Ready to end her life.
There she sits alone crying,
Wondering about if she were dying.
“Would they even notice I was gone?”
Or would they just carry on?”
As she lures the knife,
She is ready to die…
