The pain that no one knows hurts more as it grows. The feeling that no on knows stays forever as each day goes. If only someone knew what I always went through, maybe then, I would have a friend too. A friend, confidante, anyone would do. But everyone avoids me. I don't know why but they act like they don't see me. I don't want to be alone anymore. I close my eyes in pain as the tears pour. Just then, I feel some beside me. I turn to find a boy looking at me. He holds out a tissue and waits for my tears to dry. And in a soft voice utters the words, "Don't cry". An overwhelming feeling fills my heart. It's as if my heart is bursting apart. Smiling through the tears, I whisper, "Thank you" to the boy who did what no one had managed to do.
The girl that looked so lonely everytime I saw her was finally smiling through her tears. I just wish that she would be my friend, but I guess that is just wishful thinking on my end. The next day, I wake up in my bed stretching myself to keep awake. I hear a sound coming from beside me below. I look down to see the girl who smiles and says, "Hello!"
