She goes about her day to day duties to perfection.
She cries alone and works her way through fears and self rejection.
No one knows this angel is carrying such grief.
If only they saw a glimpse of things they’d sigh in disbelief.
She seems so perfect,
Not one single flaw.
Everyone looks at her with envy if only they knew it all.
Her heart aches with loneliness and her tears disguised with pride.
Why does she care what they think?
It’s becoming too much for her to hide.
She sits at home and pours her heart out to a man that doesn’t really care.
He never hears a word she says,
He just looks right through her,
As if she’s not really there.
She is running out of friends to confide in and family has gone astray.
Alone and broken hearted,
She slowly fades away.
