Skipping a Beat

Skipping a Beat

Her smile is painted on.
Like a mask she wears,
To hide herself.
Her eyes have lost their shine.
They look empty and dead.
She’s crying inside.
In her head,
She wants to scream.
But she keeps it in,
Her problems unseen.
She wants a hand to hold.
Someone to understand,
Her world is so cold.
And her heart beat is still.
Because she’s hurt so much,
It’s broken in too.
She’s a shattered shell.
Alone and lost,
Battling a personal hell.
Life’s nipping at her heels.
She yearns for help,
To enable her to heal.
She wants things to change.
To mend her heart,
She feels short changed.
So when will it be her day?
Will her heart beat again?
Or will the pain always stay?
The answers are unknown.
For we each decide,
To bear our own stone.
