A hush descends
On the normally loud halls
As I am slowly walking through the crowds.
I know what everyone is talking about,
William and me.
Through all the criticism
Falling onto me like rain
I though my friends would comfort me.
Instead they brought more criticism,
Then anyone could handle.
I cried that night,
My tears dropping unheard, unseen
Onto my pillow.
My friends will never see
The pain they gave to me.
No one will.
From now on I am alone,
Yet unafraid of the days to come.
Solely myself will fight my battles
With only my own strength as an ally.
I will not deny
The simple facts I hide.
It would have been nice
To cry one their shoulders
Not leaving my tears unseen by all
On my pillow
