Girl in the Night

written by: Seorin Kae

@SeorinKae

 

I'm not the girl in the picture frame
always smiling
always charming
never a doubt in her eyes

I'm not the girl in the mirror
covering blemishes
covering pain
fighting fears of goodbyes

I'm not the girl on Facebook
capturing good days
chatting to friends
as long as my heart can hide

I'm not the girl on the business card
a name and a number
a voice to call
the true me again-denied

unlike that girl in the picture frame
I'm not always smiling
I'm not always dreaming
I can't always choke back my tears

I'm just a girl
left behind
lost at times
fighting the void and her fears

when my heart aches
from silence
from grief
I'm just a girl in the night

kneeling
praying
searching for light
that is my image, my story, my plight

I am a student(MA) and a teacher with a busy schedule, but a lot of thoughts and sentiment I would like to share.
Through my works I want to capture the beauty we so often observe but don't always appreciate . I want to sketch the heart of the inner being of mankind and shed light in the different colors of love that we don't have names for.
