She’s Hurting

She’s hurting.
Tears fall from her pretty blue eyes.
She’s hurting.
She cannot make a smile for disguise.
She’s hurting.
Their love was interfered by many.
She’s hurting.
She’s been broken-hearted by plenty.
She’s hurting.
Her happiness has been shattered.
She’s hurting.
How it happened doesn’t matter.
She’s hurting.
What can I do to help?
She’s hurting.
When I also blame myself.
She’s hurting.
A friend of mine is in pain.
She’s hurting.
The world has gone insane.
She’s hurting.
Tell me what I can say.
She’s hurting.
To make her pain go away.
