What Happened?

What happened to your heart that day that caused the light to leave your eyes?

What called your soul to stop its dance and your heart song not to rise?

What caused you to believe that love was lost and never yours to have?

What caused such pain to silence you, this lack of trust used like a salve?

Why did your emotions flat line, and your sense of joy to diminish?

What made you to believe all dreams were dead and never yours to finish?

What's to blame for this numbness that's settled in your bones?

What's caused your life to sing in such low and mournful tones?

Why do you cling to chaos, and shun a life of  peace?

What happened to the girl who laughed and looked at life with ease?

What made your chest feel small and tight, so hollow, cold, and empty?

It used to be so filled with hope. Full, warm, and plenty. 

I wish this wasn't how you saw yourself, that all the haze would lift.

That you would know you are a treasure, how your life is such a gift. 

I pray the chains around your heart would lose their hold and crumble.

So that when love and hope would hit your heart they make the ground you walk on tremble.

I long for the day you see yourself as you truly are in my eyes.

That truth would overwhelm your mind and shatter all the lies. 

Because this isn't how you were meant to live, these scars aren't yours to bear.

You were made to run in freedom as your laughter fills the air.
