Behind that smile,
She is battling
Ravishing , charming and inspirational
But where’s the light at the end of the tunnel.
She is fighting,
Unbeknownst to us,but she is our brightest star
Behind closed doors,
The epitome of health in our sights
But on the floor, she quivers and writhes
She is alone.
Emptiness she hides, her nirvana is a myth.
The smile will fade,
That face will be seen no more.
She steals the closure we will need
Injection needles, concoctions and what-nots
Her mind, filled with poisonous thoughts,
And here we are clueless, oblivious to her secret deeds
She leaves behind her heart’s treasure
Now our eyes are open but it’s too late,
Tears, confusion, grief
She’s left us, gone, too soon.
Why? We ask ourselves, we need closure.
But it’s taken away forever, dim is our once bright star.
