the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 44

every missing purpose
every hidden secret
holds a deeper meaning
filled with much regret

every messed up life
every painful head
every whip of strife
will end up with the dead

i saw her saddened tears
the tears i used to cry
but hers were right before
my smiling happy eyes

a smile broke across my face
i wanted to let out a laugh
but for her sake i hid it
i knew her life was tough

she spoke about her stresses
as her eyes began to turn red
then tears began to fall
and she lowered her head

i sat and watched her cry
the tears fell one by one
she went on with her story
until all was well and done

another friend walked past
and my smile faded away
now i felt her horror
the terror of that day

the fear she held so close
the sleep that she had lost
but i could stop none of it
sleeplessness was the cost

every single night
when she did stay up late
until all was finally done
dreaming could truly wait

and as i saw her tears
i wondered to myself
will i ever cry again
into sorrow delve

her words were hard and sad
her heart was broken
but the tears only dried
as her words were all spoken

a grin broke across her face
the tears had cleansed her sorrow
she smiled at me with hope
for a beautiful rested tomorrow
