There's so many pieces of her that are sliced and severed, only ways she protects herself is by being quiet and withdrawn from the world

karachi 11 may 2022: People only see her as the strong one. She always was that way. Now, she's broken and fragile. She wears invisible 'fragile' tape all over her body that only a few can truly see. There's so many pieces of her that are sliced and severed. The only ways she protects herself is by being quiet and withdrawn from the world. Faking her sadness by smiling more and laughing like people are used to. Sleeping a lot and drowning out her thoughts. Pretending she's the same normal girl. Some see right through the facade by seeing the sadness and loss in her eyes, and how her head turns away so people don't see the tears ready to stream down her face. Others don't notice the change. They don't see the 'fragile: handle with care' sign on her heart. They don't see the yellow 'crime scene' tape across her body so no one crosses the lines and hurt her more. They say time heals. Maybe there's a little truth in that. But maybe it's breaking down and hitting the rock bottom of your soul...then making your way back up again to truly heal.
