Like Me

I never wanted her to be like me

Think like me

Tear herself to shreds like me

We weren’t meant to share this cruel destiny

She was supposed to be smart like me

Sharp like me

With out the hate I have for myself

She was supposed to feel the love

Like someone else

But now I see

What I missed

The thoughts so hidden

A terrible twist

She’s like me

My greatest fear

She hides it so deep 

For no one to see
Just like me


I put up a wall

It touches the sky

All those who climb it

I swear will die

I built it up

Before I knew

Now it’s so high

There’s no getting through

I laid down the foundation

Brick by brick

Mixed up the mortar

So I know it’ll stick

I put in no door

Or windows to see

Added no drain

So I can drown 

In my own misery

I put in a stair way

That goes no where

Now all that I do

Is climb up those stairs

I look up high

The light a pin point

In the sky

I climb and I climb

But there’s nothing to find
