Poem: Her Unspoken Adieu
Actions hurt her more than words ever could,
She was broken to a point where no one ever would.
No one noticed that her demons and she were in a fight,
All of them were too blinded by her light.
They would never know that behind her smile,
She was going through a deadly turmoil.
Nobody knew about the wounds in her heart,
Or, that they had started to tear her apart.
Nobody loved her, or so she thought,
But this battle had to be fought.
She neither retreated nor did she quit,
Though she had started to fade away, just a little bit.
The battle went on for days and nights,
Until the point where she finally couldn't fight.
So, she did what she thought was the best,
Now, she had to be heaven's guest.
As soon as the blade met her skin,
She forgot every place she'd ever been.
Blood oozed out from the deep cut,
Now she could do nothing, no matter what.
Soon, she was covered in her own pool,
Her body now was slumped and cool.
Everything was blur, nothing looked fine,
Then her breaths finally resigned.
She, at last, closed her eyes slowly,
Because her grief had consumed her wholly.
People were shocked when they heard it the next day,
"We didn't know about it" , now they say.
Tears were shed, words exchanged,
But what was done, nobody could change.
But you can't say that she didn't try,
She had her share of pain in her last cry.
Maybe her demons were too strong to defeat,
Maybe her life was meant to remain incomplete.
Yes, she was finally tired of "pretending",
And this fairy didn't have a happy ending.
