Writing about ones feelings can be difficult. Sometimes the poet wishes to maintain a certain amount of anonymity. We respect this choice. That is why we will publish the poem written by You’d Rather Not Know / The Boy who wrote without much personal information.

About the poem

I wrote this after I was at a really dark place in my life. I was all alone and had no one to talk to. I wanted to empathise this experience from a girl’s perspective. And to ensure that if anyone is in that place, they know they aren’t alone.

Follow You’d Rather Not Know on Instagram. We hope he will publish some more poems in the near future.


By You’d Rather Not Know


Is all my life come to?
Waiting for my saviour,
My knight in shining armour,
Do not test my patience,
For I am already broken,
I’ve hurt myself immensely,
By all the truths I have spoken,
They left me isolated,
Away from this cruel world,
Thus, I am a prisoner to my own mind,
Which makes me recall the trail of
destruction I have left behind.
They haunt me day and night,
I’ve tried my best to fight,
It is futile, for I am now tired,
I return to my cell, forever there I’ve retired,
The only peace I have is when I think of hope,
That a day will come when I shall be rescued,
A knight will save me from my greatest fears,
He shall wipe away all the tears,
For now, I wait, I rest,
All I can do is hope, at best.
