She no longer smiles

She no longer smiles
 
She broke the one heart that loved her the most
 A realization paid with lateness
 She now tents in the shadow of what used to be her happiness
 Wishing for the past to be present
 Cussing the devil every night for making her fall into that trap 
That trap that deprived her of her happiness
 She no longer smiles; her bitterness engulfs it all
 
Memories, memories keep her awake
 With a tear on her cheek
 Crying for the only person dear to her heart
 She sees herself as the Judas Iscariot of his heart
 With every fiber of her heart, she wants him back
 
She misses his laughs, hugs, kisses
 An unforgivable sin, the knowledge that he is no longer coming back haunts her
 What can she do with the love that she is left with?
 Crippled thoughts of what will never be
 She no longer smiles but she weeps
 
He went away with all his fairytales
 Stories that he would whisper to her ears as she slips into a dream
 She no longer smiles but she weeps
 Love long gone, lost in confusion
 Replaced by bitterness and regrets
 A mirror stolen from her, never to appreciate her beauty
 She no longer smiles but she weeps.
