Ellie

You had so much to give
and so much going for you,
but a missed flight tipped you
over the edge.
You didn’t want to let people down,
your mind fraught with guilt
You took to the wood,
and left this world.
We see a smile and a happy face
but this is just the thin veneer
we choose to look upon
not the complicated self
that lives within.
It is more difficult
to learn to know each other,
more difficult to learn the
intricacies of our inner selves
We hide this real us so well
that even our nearest are unsure
of who we are.
I cry a tear for Ellie and all who
suffer invisibly.
