If a girl screams But no one’s around to hear her Did she really make a sound? If a girl falls to the ground In utter desperation But no one’s around to see her Did she really move? If a room is an empty space And no one ever comes in To say hello. And the girl inside Is never given a reason To leave Did the door ever open? Or was it always locked? Rusted shut? If a girl does nothing But suffer (in silence), If she made sure no one knew, Did she ever have purpose? Did she ever have meaning? Did her time, her emotions Really happen? Or was she erased By the many spans of nothingness… If a girl fades Into the Plain Gray Buildings Around her And disappears completely But no one knew she was there in the first place Did she really exist? please give feedback! I'm a new writer and need to get better.
You can promise kids anything. Toys, candy, or maybe their mom is going to live. You could tell them the sun was rolling around on the outside of the earth like a great big marble and it rests over Australia at night. They'll believe you, with innocent eyes, too pure and good to see through your lies. They don't know any better. Somehow, that makes it easier to lie.
