The Girl You Know

Broken.
Dizzying anger makes her sway.
Will she always be this way?
A poem about the crushing weight of bottling up depression.

3. The Girl That You Know

The girl that you know doesn't open her mouth.

She isn't loud. She doesn't shout.

Occasionally she does but mostly in her head. The voice inside a screaming whisper.

When she talks the words don't come out right. Well... they do but it's not like she's 

heard.

SHE doesn't want to hear her.

SHE'LL NEVER LET HER SPEAK.

SHE doesn't listen SHE just talks. 

SHE yells.

SHE squawks.

SHE makes her wish she was dead.

The girl you know wishes for death. When someone asked if she did she lied. They asked her if 

she thought about suicide.

"All the time" she should've shouted with dismay.

But how could she? What would they say? 

They'd sure as hell lock her away!

So of course she said no. Bottled it up.

She lied about it. You can still hear her sobs 'till this day

But to you, she's a sweet one.

The girl with the smartarse mouth.

Simply the girl that you know.
