The Afterglow

Just a poem that I wrote for Creative Writing class

The Afterglow”

She puts on a smile

when she’s feeling down.

She hides her tears

from everyone around.

Nobody can see the front

she puts on.

She’s afraid nobody will see,

until she’s gone.

All she could hear

was the beat of her heart

slower now

that he tore it apart.

All that’s left of him now

is the memory in the distance.

All she wants to do now

is fix this.

She misses him now

after she put him through all this

she wonders

if she too is worth being missed.

When she will see him again,

she does not know.

All anyone can see on the outside

is the afterglow.

The End
