Who is She? 

By Bhawna Sharma 
She smiles; she hides,

She looks just fine, 

But what she veils, 
Is a fine mystery. 
 Her head and heart are lions thrown at play,

Never at peace with one another 

Howling inside, how still can she stay? 

I wanted to run errands to cure her pain,

Do your chores they said 

Wash the dishes they said 

It’ll get better they said 

But who heard them?
A hopeless; helpless; wreck 

Like a left out damaged pearl.
She dabbed the cut with cotton wool,
Wrapped it within jarred smiles and left for smaller steps to take. 
The scars flared up again,

When I realised, it was me feeling the pain.
But what could I do? 

The bandages were too tight. 

And all I could do, was smile. 

and smile. 

The tears I hide,
Can’t remain inside.
I let my eyes cry until they want,
To get out the memories which still haunts.
