Hello people! What to say? I'm a Christian girl. I like to write. I write tons of poetry, some short stories, and other things.
God bless you!

FREE WRITING

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
I'm waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
I'm waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?


I'm trying not to crack 
Under the pressure in my chest
I'm trying to take my voice back
Stop choking on the lump in my throat
But nobody's here to hear me speak
So I send an S.O.S. and wait for an answer
But I've lost all hope that anyone's coming
"You've been forgotten," my demons are humming.

Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I got nothing to share
No, I got nothing to say


I've learned to live unloved
I've learned to live alone
But what I'll never get used to
Is that I really should have known
If I speak up, think they'll remember
If I speak up it won't hurt less
It'll tear a new hole in my heart
My mind is fraying like a thread
'Cause then they all reply, reply
"And who might you be, miss?"

When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
It's like I never made a sound
Will I ever make a sound?


I wake up gasping, sobbing hard
A nightmare, that is all it was
But still I dare not open the door
In fear that I'll see what was there before
An empty home, an empty house
No family, all quiet as a mouse
So when my sister comes bursting through
As though nothing was wrong, well, nothing new
I dare not even lift my eyes
For I couldn't bear if this love
Is all a dream, and the nightmare is true. 
 
Song used: Waving Through a Window from Dear Evan Hansen

On the outside, always looking in
Will I ever be more than I've always been?
'Cause I'm tap, tap, tapping on the glass
I'm waving through a window
I try to speak, but nobody can hear
So I wait around for an answer to appear
While I'm watch, watch, watching people pass
I'm waving through a window, oh
Can anybody see, is anybody waving back at me?

Give them no reason to stare
No slipping up if you slip away
So I got nothing to share
No, I got nothing to say

When you're falling in a forest and there's nobody around
Do you ever really crash, or even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
Did I even make a sound?
It's like I never made a sound
Will I ever make a sound?
