Beneath Still Waters

Behind all the forced smiles

Behind the portrayed brave face

Behind the seemingly jovial eyes

Lies a traumatized and hurting lass

 

She trusts no one

Into her heart she allows no one

For she had allowed once

To trust and allow someone

 

Trusting and believing so easily

Laughing, loving and adoring

Had been so fulfilling

But its now hurting

 

She's intent on breaking the yoke

The next time she receives a poke

She hopes she won't puke

But return the poke

 

She is tired and worn

After being trodden on

She needs to lay down

All her baggage and burden

 

She wants to be free!
