why are you so dark?

the young girls wish upon a star

don’t they know, that it’s a dead planet whose light has died many years ago?

they are too late and wasting their precious time.


I am too dark

darkness is my friend, guiding me,

giving me hope and taking it away softly,

unseen by most


and they wonder why I became like this

my hopeless, hidden self


I’ve seen the lights go out

and life fading into darkness.

I’ve seen bodies fading

and souls degrading.


Once, I was a young girl too,

wishing upon a star and waiting for the magic to happen,

now I’m older and wiser.

                                           disillusioned sometimes too.


Author’s notice:

this is from last June. I was in a dark(er) place than I usually am and I hated my life and everything around me with a vengeance. For those who care; right now, I am in a pretty solid mindset. I try to be less cynic and more positive, at which I admittedly don’t always succeed. But I do my best, trying to surround myself with people I like, doing the things I like to do and ignoring all those people who try to tell me, that I will fail with everything I do!
