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.
