Look into her eyes, 

beneath the facade of lies. 

You will see the depths

of all the sadness possessed. 

Her smiles will fade, 

and her laughter will vanish, 

for she was played, 

and her happiness banished. 

So don't try to pretend

that you are her friend, 

for she knows the bitter truth, 

and she knows exactly how it ends. 

The author's comments:

This poem was written to show what it is really like when someone is depressed/heartbroken. People often don't see the true emotions because we try to hide them in order to protect everyone else, or to keep others from worrying, but this is the truth; this is what is really felt.
