Tragic Lies - Poem by Samantha Desmond

She tells me everything's fine,
so i go about my day,
but with this burning feeling,
something must be wrong.

I see her again in the hall,
later that day,
and on her beautiful face,
she wears this distressed look.

I can't help but ask again,
and again i get the same answer,
everything is fine,
but she can't convince me with her eyes.

I go home after school,
going about my day normally,
doing homework,
and cooking dinner for my younger brother.

12 am, I am in a dead sleep,
about to be disturbed,
by the over and over again ringing,
feeling like a dream at first.

I answer and hear the words,
and a stab of pain in my stomach,
I want to puke,
as the realization hits,
Everything was wrong...

Who once was lost will never be again...
