I sit alone, inside my head, watching the sun rise. A series of creamy, salmon, fiery colors swarm around my, concealing me in a cacoon of warmth. I wish I could be here forever and forget the words said to me. Here, I am never judged, here I am safe from winters cold, harsh words that sting like wasps in spring. I take in a deep breath and the smell of grass fills me. Yes... I wish I could stay here forever. 

She was at school today, hair like wet sand and eyes like honey. The girl everyone wants to be. Then there is me, with hair not unlike the wire fence surrounding my below average house, and eyes, dark and unwelcoming. Her words pierce my skin just like a blade. Her hate makes me crumble. But unlike her, I do not speak, I hold it in.

I see the sun peeking up, as if we were playing hide and seek. First a shimmer, then a glow, and soon the sun we all know. Where were you when I needed you most? Where were you when the night came to swallow me whole. How come when I prayed all you did was hide and wait? I needed you when she cursed at me. Told me I was worthless and fat and ugly. I needed the sun, but I got the rain. Tear drops hidden behind my veil that I wear in order to make everyone more comfortable. 

The ball of gas sits higher in the sky, looking down at me. Surrounded by blue and white, colors inspiring calm. But, I'm not calm. I'm angry. I hate her and even more, I hate myself for letting those words get to me like this. I should have walked away, but I didn't. I stood there and waited for my knight in shining armor to say it wasn't true, but he never came. 

The sun starts to fade away, leaving me with nothing but darkness all over again. 

I scream and yell for you to come back, I don't want to wait another 8 hours. I need your warmth to feel safe, like the hugs I never receive. I need your light to guide me through the night, like a flashlight my family is too poor to own. I need your colors, your bright, bright colors to feel happiness. The happiness only caused by you. I need the sun to keep me alive. For without it, I am nothing.
