She was almost
back to her
old self

except

she still had
her quiet
moments

she still withdrew
from the people who
loved her

she still kept
herself to
herself

she still stopped
herself from reaching
out

except

her smile
wasn't the same

her laugh
wasn't the same

except

she doesn't dance
anymore

she doesn't sing
anymore

except

she hadn't gotten
back up
from the floor

she hadn't been able
to see the stars
in a while

except

she won't
meet
your eyes

she won't
take
your hand

except

she has a
tear left
unshed

she has a
word left
to share

except

she's not
looking
forward

she's not
hoping for
anything better

she's not
yet thrown the
picture away

she's not
walked out
the door

she was almost
back to her
old self

except

she wasn't
