She wanted to be saved,
from all the misery and all the pain.
From all those tears that kept her awake,
so much so that her body could not take.
Sleep deprived, she craved for relief,
hoping and praying against every belief.
Tears kept rolling down her cheeks,
as she tried to forget every moment of grief.
The storm raging in her heart,
threatened to break her soul apart.
The worst was not knowing what bothered her,
depression did finally occur.
She looked around to share her secret,
no one was ready to see her weakness.
She learned to plaster a fake smile,
with the lost twinkle of her eyes.
Time passed and she continued living,
her heart in pain but still giving.
She hoped that very soon a day would come,
either life would win or to death, she would succumb.
