Beautiful – Joanna E.

There is a girl in my class

She sits across from me

I’d watch people talk about her

as if she isn’t even there

She acts like she doesn’t hear it

but I still thinks she’s beautiful

There is a girl in my class

She sits across from me

with pale white skin & empty eyes

I would ask her if she’s okay

She said she’s fine

Her eyes tell me otherwise

But I still think she’s beautiful

There is a girl in my class

She sits across from me

She doesn’t smile much anymore

and all those things people said

are cut into her existence

but I still think she’s beautiful

There was a girl in my class

She sat across from me

that committed suicide last night

not knowing that

I thought she was beautiful

and I still do.
