Deception or Perception?

Do you see that girl?
Have you looked in her eyes?
Do you know all of her struggles?
Have you answered her cries?
She wears a bright smile, but that smile is fake
Inside she is dying, as her heart starts to break
She goes through the motions, though she is truly not there
In her mind she is distracted, by people who don’t care
People meaning friends
People meaning guys
People meaning anybody
Who filled her life with lies
She feels like that book
The one that’s marked used
Beaten up, ripped apart, damaged, and abused
Marked down on the shelf, at price anyone could pay
But no one wants a used book, on the shelf is where she’ll stay
