An emotionless face,
That once held so much expression,
Remembers a million happy

Who once believed in fairytales and magic,
Remembers a time where play dates
Were innocent,
And it was okay to be

That was once happy,
Now tells the truth
In a version unlike

A suicide,
That was not entirely meant to be,
Now holds the life of a
