Melancholy Girl

She is sorrow.
Tears always fill her eyes.
If you ought to be near her,
You would find despair and anguish.
You might find hatred and loathing.
She hides behind a melancholy sheet,
Only by herself.
She talks with herself
And swears she is talking to somebody else.
But if you were to look in on her.
She would be unaccompanied.
She never comes out.
Not even to eat,
Or to clean.
She sits by herself in this depressing room,
In this morose house,
On this miserable hill.
She is a very melancholy girl.

I am 16 years old girl and a junior in highschool. My favorite books are: The Twilight Saga, The Harry Potter Series, The Cirque Du Freak Series, and thief lord. My favorite movies are: The Harry Potter Series, A Walk To Remember, and Disney Movies. My favorite poetry authors are: Edgar Allen Poe and Robert Frost. I am a very big fangirl (some could say nerd). I like anime and manga. Harry Potter is my number one thing: I have a list of spells and quotes from the books on my bedroom walls! Don't feel like you would offend me by calling me a freak, because it's true! Well that about sums me up... more…
