She smiled her sad smile & sang her slow song the night rang with the melody of the world – hair framed a face of sorrow that no one saw – they saw the beauty that lay skin deep but underneath the flesh the body was haunted – haunted by mistakes & regrets – they pasted her face everywhere & when she took her life that final night they did not understand why because they never knew her – maybe if they had they could have prevented her needless death but they saw a strong beautiful woman with no fears no past no tears it took her dying for them to see her & still they did not understand – not that it mattered it was too late.
