I know a Girl

I know a girl,
with pain in her eyes
and sorrow in her soul
and regret in every fiber of her being.

I know a girl,
a very lovely girl
who hides much beneath
and no one ever notices.

I know a girl
with a shattered smile
with melancholy laughter on her lips
with scars on her soft, impressionable wrists
with doubt plastered upon her flawless brow.

I know a girl
who is “okay”
who is “fine”
who is just tired of this life.

I know a girl who is broken.
I love this girl who is falling apart. 

I know a girl I want to fix.


  1. Maddie, it's brilliant. The pain, the colors of the sadness are all palpable, really. I love the ending, it's powerful!
