She’s always sad

Never wears a smile

Her life’s not that bad?

Maybe live in it awhile

Everything seems fine

She keeps it hidden away

Until its time

She can’t keep her feelings at bay

She goes into the room and locks the door

Here come the silent sobs

As she falls to the floor

Depression just doing its job

By the time she leaves

Her wrists are painted with red

Makes the feelings cease

But still wishes she was dead

Supper is done

She doesn’t eat

Skipping meals is fun

Only has a little treat

She stares at the mirror

Not happy with what she sees

She is broken

And the feeling will never cease
