Do You Really Know?

Do you really know Her?
She is innocent
She is an angel
But when out of sight
She is quite the sight
Cigarette in her hand
Pills in her mouth
Alcohol on her breath
Blood on her wrists
"I'm Fine!" she insists
"I'm just a little tired, that's all!"
She suffers
Did you see her wrists?
Have you seen her thighs?
No. You have not.
Long sleeves ,Pants past her knees
Hiding the unseen
She may seem happy
She does not want anyone to worry
She is dead inside...on the outside she is smiling
Laugh like an angel, Innocent like a child
Scarred by her own fingertips
Depressed and suicidal
Daybreak comes
Back to being happy
Back to laughing
Back to joking
She Is Depressed. She Is Suicidal.
So now... Do you really know Her?
