Alone

Alone

She just sits alone. 

Somewhere where its covered in darkness.

She hides her feelings and buried it inside.

Se hides the hurt that burns through her heart even to the ones close to her.

 

He wakes up screaming.

In his mind he hears bombs going off and machine guns.

The flames roaring as they lick the building near and around him.

He hides the hurt that burns through his heart even to the ones close to him.

 

His mind is numb.

He laughs and makes a fool of himself without even realizing it.

It was supposed to be a one time thing, just to numb the pain he feels.

He hides the hurt that burns through his heart even to the ones close to him.

 

The old woman thinks about her past.

Her party days are over.

She remembers the pain it caused her family and her kids.

She hides the hurt that burns through his heart even to the ones close to her.

 

The child cries at night.

She remembers the pain she felt when the words said to her stung her heart.

The pain that swept through her as she shoved against the lockers.

She hides the hurt that burns through his heart even to the ones close to her.

 

She sees him everyday.

A smirk forms on his face when he sees her, knowing it causes her pain.

Laying in a puddle of her own tears.

She hides the hurt that burns through his heart even to the ones close to her.
