She locked herself in her head. Thinking no one cared.
She became quiet. She was tired. Tired of what she was going through.
If only someone could see the darkness that had consumed her life.
She no longer felt happy.
She had pushed everyone away. Her world had become lonely.
She feared that she had lost her friends forever. She would never get her friends back. For the love they gave her, she now saw lack.
If only she could run away from her pain. She wanted to live again.
She knew he was the reason why she had lost it all. Though, his love was what she wanted but why does she still feel empty.
His demands have dried her up. But yet she still searches within for something within her to give.
She wonders if he loves her. If he cared the way she did. If he would leave everything for her. And only her.
She is too scared to ask him. To ask anything of him. For he is the only one left in her life. Everyone has left her behind.
She craves for her life to go back to the way it was. Where she had her smile. She had her friends. She was happy.
But, she isn’t strong enough to walk away from him. Though he suffocates her.
She feels stuck between him and herself.
