Do they know I'm the girl that dances in the sunshine?


Do they know I’m the girl that dances in the sunshine?

Do they know everything about my relationship with the sun?

Do they know all that we’ve experienced together?

I wonder if they know that the moon scares me.

I wonder if they know that the moon brings darkness to my soul and makes me feel alone. I imagine some don’t think about me. At least not every day.

I imagine they go about their days, not wondering what my mind is doing. What new creation I've created.

They- the people who have hurt me. The people who have taken a part of my innocence that I cannot get back. The people who made me feel more alone than the darkness does. Do they know I’m the girl that dances in the sunshine?

Do they know the pain that the dark gifts to me?

Do they know how hard it is to get up and dance in the sunshine some days? Do they know that the sun burns my skin?

I wonder if they know that my mind burns itself. Engraving the words they once said into my skull.

I wonder if they know that my song is sad some days.

I wonder if the darkness has ever met the sun.

I wonder if the darkness ever captures them.

I imagine the good side of things, but even then, dark comes. It captures me. I imagine people don’t notice the dark as I do. Why would they?

Do they know I’m the girl that dances in the sunshine?
