Behind Those Eyes

Poem By Amber Millar

You smile and you giggle,
And you say everything just right,
Every joke and every laugh,
You're always right on cue,
So full of fun and larger than life,
But I can see it, right behind your eyes,

Your beauty is a mask,
A self conscious smile flutters,
On those pretty little lips,
Your confidence comes across so strong,
You're the proudest in the room,
But I can see it, right behind your eyes,

That quick witted remark stings,
The look of scorn you give burns,
Every insult and every dismissal,
Every look of loathing, every nasty smirk,
You're the one who cannot stand me,
But I can see it, right behind your eyes,

I stand and watch you from a corner,
I see all those smiles, all those laughs,
All that brightness and all that beauty,
Can heard those nasty words and hateful hints,
Can see those glares and ashamed frowns,
But I can see it, right behind your eyes,

Right behind your eyes...
You just need a friend.


I will always be here.

Loser Girl

Sat alone in a corner,
Not quite being anyone,
Watching from the shadows,
Hidden from the sun,

It's Time To Let Go

It's time to let go now,
To release this breaking line,
The only thing connecting us,
Just because I've let go the pain won't stop,

A Cracked Heart

A hairline fracture run through your heart,
You take a gasp before the ache starts,
Inside it throbs in time with your tears,
Your face feels wet and your thoughts are unclear,

Walk To The Ends Of The Earth

I would walk to the ends of the earth for you,
Or with you if need be,
Hold your hand as you plunge into reality,
And when you are scared I will comfort you,

From Where I'M Stood

It feels like a million different voices are talking,
All at once,
And I can't really hear what's being said,
Can't translate the meaning,

I Never Meant To Do This

I never meant to do this,
I'm sorry,
I never meant to fall for you,
I'm sorry,
