She cries in the silence of the night,
No tears, no sounds, no movement to betray her.
Her soul dies each night, hoping the day will bring
Calm and peace, and a new perspective.

Sleep brings no refuge, it’s so hard to find
No dreams to pretend with, just tossing all through.
She wakes with hopes, but they’re dashed anew.
Each time the sun rises on the next day.

Her days are filled with pretence and fiction,
Showing no sign of her torment to any.
She’s now very good at it
‘Cause no-one asks her why she’s so sad?

She wonders if it’s worth it,
Why should she go on,
It’s hard to continue
With a heart desolate.

She rises and makes motions of living her life,
Others depend on her; keep them unwise.
Memories tear her soul apart
But mermories also shine so bright.

Her heart feels empty, her soul laid waste,
No-one can see beyond her “face”;
Time to arise and say to the world,
Leave me alone, this is my fate!

Time continues, as the sun sets each night,
She knows it will rise again, just like she does.
Scars are grown and walls are built tight
She resolves to go on, to keep up the fight.

The day draws to a close and . . . . . . .

She wonders, “Why do I stay?”
