Yes, you know her – but.

For you.

She wears the most colorful dress.

But you have never seen her in plain black and white.

She applies the brightest colorette.

But you have never seen her bared face.

No, you haven’t.

For you.

She speaks the warmest words.

But you have never heard her complain or curse.

She dances so beautifully to the rhythm.

But you have never seen her stumbled down once or twice and even more.

No, you haven’t.

For you.

She smiles and giggles like a child.

But you have never seen her cried so hard with her heart out.

She might be silent sometimes but she never fails to make you smile and even others too.

But you have never witnessed that her silence is killing her inside.

No, you haven’t.

For you.

She sings the most soulful melodies.

But you have not felt the tormenting message behind that song.

She does things with the best effort that she could possibly give.

But you have never took a glimpse of the scars and bruises she got from it.

No, you haven’t.

You have only seen her as to what you believe she is in your eyes.

But you did not take the time.

To gain her trust so that she can unveil herself more to you.

To get to know her more and to see the real her from the inside out.

No, you did not.

 

And still.

You have not.

And yes, maybe you know her.

But just not quite enough.
