the Body Language

Did you see me today
I was that shadow behind you quietly doing manual labor well my body fell apart
My anguish and suffering silent
I didn't complain, you didn't acknowledge

My work you credited with a smart smack on the back
Unknowingly breaking bones, severing an artery
Your gratitude made me bleed out

As I turned ashed white recognition registered in your eyes
Bit too late, my soul slipped away and my body died
