I write poetry myself but find it too hard to show others my work. I have a hard time expressing how I feel but poetry helps me with that, same as music. The poems below aren’t mine but of some very talented writers.

I Wish I Wasn’t Alone

© Jo
Once when I was little
I was happy and carefree
I used to run around laughing
Until it was time for teaI used to play games
And smile all the time
I used to feel on top of the world
I used to feel fineIt’s amazing how things change
When people let you down
And how that once happy face
Turns into a solemn frown

You search and search
For someone who cares
Anyone who understands
Anyone who dares

Loneliness, it hurts
It kills you deep inside
It makes you feel empty
It stops you in your stride

You cry yourself to sleep
Hugging your pillow tight
Wishing for someone
To hold you through the night

Once when I was little
I was happy and carefree
Now my life’s full of sadness,
Pain and misery

Once when I was little
I was never on my own
But now I pray at night
”I wish I wasn’t alone”

Mask

© Potsim And Pikachu
I was once sad and lonely,
Having nobody to comfort me,
So I wore a mask that always smiled;
To hide my feelings behind a lie.Before long, I had many friends;
With my mask, I was one of them.
But deep inside, I still felt empty,
Like I was missing a part of me.Nobody could hear my cries at night
For I designed my mask to hide the lies.
Nobody could see the pain I was feeling
For I designed my mask to be laughing.

Behind all the smiles were the tears
And behind all the comfort were the fears.
Everything you think you see,
Wasn’t everything there was to me.

Day by day,
I was slowly dying.
I couldn’t go on,
There was something missing..

Until now I’m still searching
For the thing that’ll stop my crying.
For someone who’ll erase my fears,
For the person who’ll wipe my tears.

But till then I’ll keep on smiling.
Hiding behind this mask I’m wearing.
Hoping one day I can smile,
Till then, I’ll be here.. waiting.
