She dreamed of a girl who wasn’t the same as anyone else

She dreamed of someone who couldn’t quite be placed.

She dreamed of a girl who felt like she couldn’t ever be happy again.

She dreamed of a girl who felt like her head was spinning through many bizarre thoughts.

She dreamed of a girl who felt like the whole world was in the middle and she was pushed to the boundaries. As if the boundaries asked her to join them because they knew she’d fit in there.

She dreamed of a girl who wasn’t the same as anybody else.

She dreamed of a girl who started to begin hating the things she used to like.

She dreamed of a girl who seemed as if she was depressed but didn’t know how to tell anyone.

She dreamed of a girl who was sick and tired of hearing people say stuff like: “Do better.” “You’re a girl, girls are supposed to be happy.” “Don’t be so bossy.” “Wear more makeup, you’d look prettier.” “Don’t wear THAT much makeup, you'll look fake.”

She dreamed of a girl who didn’t think she fit in. 

She dreamed of a girl who always thought that she had anxiety. 

She dreamed of a girl who never felt loved.

She dreamed of a girl who was judged and pushed around.

She dreamed of a girl who wanted someone to talk to but nobody understood her.

She dreamed of a girl who didn’t want to be a girl anymore because she was sick and tired of hearing gruesome thoughts like that.

She dreamed of someone who couldn’t quite be placed.
