In realation to your comment on "smile", it is exactly the idea that help when needed is never really there and the fact that someone's, anyone's life can just be layed out for people to criticise and compare to... people always seem to say that things could be worse, and that is the only thing that you dont want anyone to say, because they dont know you well so how can their perception from the outside in be correct or substantial.
Eventually you just learn to smile because its always easier to hide behind it than for other people to criticise you for not smiling in the first place.
I can see how you can relate to my poem so easily, as I believe it is a fairly universal subject. It is funny that your favourite lines were;
"suicide crosses your mind.
but reality won't let you go."
Because they too were my favourite lines, for me they just say so much... in times of crisis it is always better to re- evaluate the situation, because in the end you know that you could never do it to yourself or the people around you.
That, to me is what "smile" is all about, and you found the meaning in it so easily...
I'm glad you liked it for what it was, and could relate to aswell.
Thankyou for a comment that truly meant alot, it is always nice to know that there is someone else out there who understands...
thank you again.
I thankyou for the favourites addition of "Insert Requiem"...
As much as I appreciate it, I would also like to know what you thought of it, and why you added it to your fav's... if you get a chance that is...
well thankyou again, it was a nice surprise.
hi- I wanted to thank you for the comment on What We Outgrew! I am glad that you liked it. As for the scream/dream thing in the first line when I say "always chasing someone else's dreams" I mean dream as (of course) hopes and aspirations but then I also mean dream to carry on to mean a literal dream in the next line...so it's like I "wake in cold sweat winded from screams" as if it were a bad dream and I'm screaming to try to wake myself and I just can't escape the dream but then the "noise (form the screams) drowns my sorrow | with a smile I borrowed". I don't know if that really clarified it at all for you but yeah-I tried. :-) Well, thanks again for the comment and I hope to hear from you again!
Thanks so much for the comment on Darkened Sky. The person talking to me is socity. I've stopped cutting since I wrote this. Though when I was going through this hardship, that's how people seen me. As an igsignificant child, someone once told me that I was like the kid next doors imaginary friend. It hurts when you know people see your pain, though they do nothing to comfort you, all they do is judge and critize. I've always said, "the ignorance of the world apauls." Thanks again! Dominique
