Tears trickle down her face,
Smudging her mascara coated eyes,
The tears seem out of place,
But all she wants is to die.
A pillow keeps sobs smothered
But the noise rings clear in her ears,
She doesn't want to be bothered,
They brought to life her darkest fears.
She was now truly alone
Every night and day
She felt like they wanted her to be a drone
So she saw she had to do thing's her own way.
But she also saw what really mattered,
The warmth in his eyes,
As he looked at her, scarred and tattered,
He said, "Pretty girls should never cry."
He held her close
And wiped her tears
He kissed her nose
And chased away her darkest fears.
