Liar

Her body is stained with bruises

Her skin is broken and red

'Oh my God!' they exclaim

'What the hell happened to you?'

She debates with herself

-Do I tell them what he did?

'Nothing,' she says

'I'm fine'

She's a liar

She doesn't know who she's lying for.

-----

Her body is thin and fragile

She's tired and she faints more and more

'What's the matter?' they ask

'Are you okay?'

She smiles a little

-Do I look okay?

'Nothing,' she tells them

'I'm absolutely fine'

She's a liar

She doesn't know why she lies to them.

-----

Her house is just a building, not a home

It's a place of torture for her

'Don't you want to go home?' her teachers ask

'Is everything all right there?'

She looks at them through empty eyes

-Please, she begs them silently, help me

'Sure,' she answers

'It's all okay'

She's a liar

She hates it

-----

Her body lies on the side of the road

It's stained with bruises, red, scarred

'We hadn't a clue,' they all say

'She always said she was fine'

She lied to them

But all she ever wanted

Was for someone

-Just one person

To see through the mask

To see the helplessness inside.
