‘Lonely’ she wrote everywhere
Tried so hard not to care.
It’s been enough of crying
But laughing would be lying.
She looked in the mirror and saw
A ghost behind her, a foe.
A dark, eerie, hooded figure.
What in her would it trigger?
Anger, sadness or pain?
Or a green mist of jealousy in her brain?
What was its purpose here?
Did it arrive to change the atmosphere?
She looked harder into the mirror
And was shocked to know it was her!
Beneath the black hood
It was her negativity that stood.
It smiled at her wickedly,
Sucking the happiness out of her quickly.
She tried to stop it but in vain,
She saw no sunlight through the rain.
It was almost over when,
She smiled through tears again.
And just like that it was gone,
Lost, ashamed and forlorn.
She cried her heart out then,
Knowing tomorrow she would begin again.
