What Once Was

What Once Was

A Poem by Lilmissfit

That teasing, tender Smile

That lost all meaning, grew sad

As rare as an angel falling from heaven


Those loving Green eyes

Filled with love, laughter

That lost all carefree sparkle

Became empty, haunted


That laughter that used to be contagious

Had lost every trace of joy, humor

Slowly fading away,

Replaced by a hollow mockery

Of what it once was


That fiery personality

Lost all spark

Like a flame with nothin,g

No one to make it burn brighter


Everything she ever was

Everything she is. . .


Smothered by the suffocating

Anguish, shame

that left her beaten, broken


Forever and always. . . Lost in herself


Imprisoned in the center of her soul

Never letting anyone in or anything out

Forever a prisoner in a cell not of her own making


Whispered words of those who never knew her

Wondered if she ever even existed


She was the rumor

That everyone talked about

But never knew the real story


Bitter sweet sorrow in the faces of those who knew her,

Unlike those who never tried


Tomorrow and the next,

Every day after, When the sun comes up,

When the stars and the moon light up the night sky

She will always remember what made her

What she has become. . .

this was nice new and exciting..
times out of the blue all changes color taste and shape
like the self has changed and hid or disappeared so
some other being takes place ,out of the blue
out of no where..no one knows ,they say its a change of mood
but its not its the psyche its never stable,and the mind
always shaking brings moods out of somewhere deep
in mind..where to look,its hard..strange you could use it
explore some other self inside you,its like other being
taking over,heart and shape,really loved this
lovely write

Only change it if you think it needs to be changed.

Saddly desperate(?), and mostly needing a very real friend that won't take "Nothings wrong" - for an answer.
