She keeps a strong and brave front
Every day, a ready smile on her face
And easily fools everyone
Deep inside what people choose not to see
Her heart bleeds and cries invisible tears
With the pain she tries to hide
Constantly comes at night as she sleeps.
Then he comes with a promise
And casts his spell on her
In the hopes of pulling her out of this chaos of a mess
Giving her a reality
Far sweeter than what she had before.
The magic he brings completely envelopes her
And keeps her in a tight embrace
Safe and secure with a hope that endures
Until she no longer sees the need
To pretend or try hard
To exist in this lonely place of lure.
