With a broken smile


She always had trouble with herself and the effects she had on everyone else-
With the broken smile she had on her face, she hides her pain-
The views she sees will not help her in any way-
Sorry for all the bad things he will say, for they tend not to mean anything-
Doesn't know how to deal, so she sleeps all day-
Every time she falls she can not help it-
She feels worthless and unable to breathe-
It's just words she will try to speak, as she can not see-
She once ran to be free, but it ended up costing her everything-
She is trapped and held against her will-
With the strength he has, she can't move around-
Her body is weak and she was told not to complain about it-
I hear her screaming from two doors down-
And I cry for her, sorry I did not help you-
So today is another day, but not for her-
You are gone now just like you always were-
We can not find you, maybe you ran again-
I just hope for the best, but its hard to deny-
When he smiles all the time, unlike he did before-
I hate him and what he did to you-
But he is still there, and I will always be her-
With the broken smile I have on my face-
I hide my pain just the same-

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
