A single tear falls from her deep brown eyes.
Tingles travel through her fingers.
Her memory ventures through the blue fields of what happened.
A single tear turns to many.
People look at her like a Barbie, perfect in every way.
No problems, no hardships, no difficulties
A superficial front she puts up
Underneath the smile, no one knows
What’s in her head, no one understands.
Easy to hide, easy to live the perfect life
The ones who want her life, are the ones who seem to be blind.
It’s often the emotional pain that trumps the physical – when the essence of hope leaves one’s mind, nothing but dull emptiness is left behind.
