Unspoken

I never asked,

You never said,

I never knew,

The thoughts in your head,

The tears you cried,

They were your own,

The road you chose,

You walked it alone,

I never asked,

You never spoke,

Just brushed it off,

And made it a joke,

Nobody saw,

That you’d been caught,

Hadn’t a clue,

The demons you fought,

I never asked,

You never told,

You were so brave,

So proud and so bold,

I watched in awe,

You were so strong,

How could I know,

That I had judged wrong?

I never asked,

You never said,

I never knew,

Just how much you bled,

Quietly spiraling,

Out of control,

Falling into,

A dark night of the soul,

I never asked,

You never told,

Your inner pain,

Was too much to hold,

Your cool facade,

Started to break,

Under the weight,

Of too much to take,

I never asked,

I wish I had,

Then this regret,

Would not sting so bad,

I hope you’re free,

Hope you’ve found peace,

I hope that you,

Have found your release,

I never asked,

Now never will,

Left with a hole,

That I just can’t fill,

Miss you so much,

Too much to say,

I feel so lost,

Now you’ve gone away.
