Face


broken girl

“The dark circles under

her eyes

complementing her

forlorn expression.

There was a girl

who never smiled.

She had a presence in the room,

though.

She spoke only once,

or twice,

but she was quiet

as a mouse.

She stared somberly into space,

and broke the hearts of anyone

who dared look at her

for too long.

She was broken

but no-one understood

why.”
