Just Another Player in This Game  

She hides behind her laughing smile,
But deep within those eyes,
Is a withering flower,
Crushed by the footsteps of lies,

Lies she tells herself,
To try and make the pain cease,
But all it does,
Is increase,

It is a completely demanding existance,
One which no one else can fathom,
She can't keep this up for much longer,
She is already preparing for her life as a phantom,

Creeping into her bed,
She fails to grasp the ideas of her peers,
So happy and carefree,
She wonders why she was damned with these tears,

Is she doomed?
Is her soul being tazed by an unseen force?
Is there an antidote?
Is there a way to stop it at it's source?

Maybe there is a way,
But she cannot endure this eternally,
She figures out a way to squelch the suffering,
The way to end this pain internally,

She jumps from a bridge,
Not looking back,
Not even a glance from passers by,
No she didn't get jack,

Not a single obituary in the paper,
Will say this girl's name,
Because no one had love for her,
She was just another player in this game.

Author Notes

About how it feels to be an outcast. It's anything but easy. It's downright hard just to keep living in this world half the time.
