Should Have Been

Her heart sank

To the depths of her stomach.

Her hopes

Violently crashed

One after the other.


Tears fluttered to her eyelids

Waiting to spill over.


When she closed her dead eyes

The warm tears poured steadily.


She tried to forget those feelings.

Feelings of joy,

admiration,

excitement.


Instead

She had to embrace the feelings of

Pain,

Rejection,

Sorrow.


She realized

What could have been

Now

Will never be.
