Do you know the girl behind the mask?
Everyone thinks they do; they could not be more wrong.
Photography saved her when pain changed her,
Reality made her the very thing she had feared;
Everything and everyone around her made it worse.
She now has energy-draining depression,
She now has cripling anxiety.
Ice-cream cannot fix this- she knows it is bad,
One person showed up and changed it all- made everything better, then left,
Now she is left more broken than ever; wondering if it will ever get better.
