Behind the enthusiasm
She is broken

Every time she gets in the car she thinks about how easy it is to just let go of the wheel

She cannot remember the last time she was happy
Or the last time she did not have to fake a smile

How it feels to be loved or how it feels to love someone

She knows that it hurts
It hurts deep inside and the pain will not go away

It gets harder and harder for her to keep her eyes open when all she wants is the end

The heart beating inside her chest does not belong to her

She is a dead soul inside of a living body.
