I tried to make this like a real poem... but it didn't work. :P So I wrote it like this... and for some reason it still seems like a poem...

The Two People in One.


My face isn’t my real face.

My real face is hiding.

She doesn’t ever like coming out.

She says it’s painful.

But I promised I’d protect her.

I gave her a good place to hide.

She’s in a place where the world can’t touch her.

She’s stayed there for over two years now…

The world is so painful though.

Full of sorrow and agony.

Sometimes… some slips past my guard.

I was stupid.

Didn’t even notice.

She was fading…

The darkness touched her.

I was concerned about myself.

All her weights on my shoulders.

I was breaking…

I was selfish.

Now she’s paying for it.

She’s crumbling away.

I don’t know what to do.

She wants to be strong and go on her own.

But the world keeps scaring her.

I can’t do it on my own though.

I'm breaking.

She keeps splitting us farther apart.

Am I an entirely different person?

I even have another name.

No! I can’t start calling myself that!

She’ll forget herself!

We were once one!

She’s leaving me.

Now I’m the one alone.

I’m not me, not her.

Who am I?

I try to take her hand

She’s just out of reach.

She’s almost gone…

My face is not my real face.

But my real face… no longer exists.

Its not an easy or quick thing to do. I've been trying to get out of depression for almost two years now and I'm still struggling. I'm still trying to learn to trust God, but I don't even totally know where to start.

Truth. I kinda have trouble moving on in this matter.

Comment by Mina on January 4, 2013 at 7:05pm

I know how that feels. Since then... well, I think I've got back a bit of my former self, but I've also realized I need to move on. It hurts though. Only one who can really heal us is God.

Yeah. There's a separate person inside of me. A person that was cut off from me because of some jerk wanting a thrill. I can't combine us. I have this shard of a person in me, but she will only remain a shard.

Yeah, pretty much. Although I was going through a deep depression when I wrote it. I like it still though. Kinda shows how much I've changed since. :) So you feel kinda the same?

Comment by Bladebearer on January 4, 2013 at 6:02pm

I really like this. This really speaks to me. I kinda have the same thing inside me. Is this how you truly feel?

Yeah, I'm horrible at writing songs to... XP 

Comment by Mina on December 18, 2012 at 1:06pm

Really? I'm terrible at writing songs...

I like getting my emotions out by writing. :)

*gasps* I just realized that could be a song!

I understand what you were talking about earlier now. :)
