The shifting feeling from happiness to sadness was subtle,
happening too slow to realize
The smile that was once carved on her face melted and dropped into a frown
I thought to myself about the issues that she may be grappling with, stealing every ounce of her cheerful demeanor
The sky, now dark and gloomy, matched the daunting and ominous feeling that radiated from her
It was as if the darkness within her had dominated
Was her joyful attitude a facade?
Has the mask that was constantly worn finally cracked to reveal their true self?
I knew that the next day would be like any other
All the darkness that had been revealed at this very moment would drip back into place,
and the facade that had finally broken will be mended once more
Hopelessness and uselessness strangling me, because I knew that no matter how hard I tried, I could never reach out
The person I was knew was gone, replaced by a decoy that lacked their true personality
