This poem has a possible trigger warning, so if you're sensitive to depressive poetry, please beware. So! Second day that I've posted a poem, feel free to comment and criticise; this one is one of my older ones.

Secrets out that shouldn’t be.
The blood washed off, the smiles faked.
In plain sight, yet never spake.
But can you not see?
The pain in her eyes?

Then, you took off her trainers,
Now, you bandage her lifeless wrists.
It was in plain sight, yet never spake.
Couldn’t you see?
All the pain in her eyes?

She had laughed, smiled, and cried.
Tears of loneliness, regret, and despair.
She was in plain sight, she never spake.
Why couldn’t you see?
All the pain in her eyes?
