Smile so bright and eyes so blue
On the outside she looks happy but no one knew

Inside she was numb and subdue
Defeated the encompassing afflictions that ail her Beyond her control
Blackness and decay she feels in the depths of he soul

But no one will know
She hides behind her lively smile
And big doe eyes
No one understands that she is projecting lies
Strength and aspiration dissolved
Transposed to decay, desolation, and despair

She doesn’t crave death
For she perished long ago.
