The grass is always greener

She was the girl
Other girls wanted to be
She was the girl
That guys turned heads to see

She was the girl
Who was never short on money
She was the girl
With a rich guy for her hubby

She was the girl
That had perfect looks
She was the girl
The kind talked of in mags and books

She was the girl
Dressed in the finest of frocks
She was the girl
Whose finger sported the biggest-ever rock

She was the girl
That always had a smile
She was the girl
Who was well-known from a mile

She was the girl
With a mansion for her home
She was the girl
That travelled to the likes of Rome

She was the girl
Who used to be my best friend
She was the girl
I lost to her husband

She was the girl
Who wore a mask for the world outside
She was the girl
Trying to make sense of her life

She was the girl
Filled with hurt and pain
She was the girl
Who was treated with disdain

She was the girl
Who hid bruises black and blue
She was the girl
Who had no idea what to do

She was the girl
Too scared to ask for help
She was the girl
Entrapped in this web

She was the girl
Who thought it was her fault
She was the girl
Suffering from physical assaults

She was the girl
Who no longer could cope
She was the girl
That hung herself with a rope

She is the girl
Whose story will be told
She is the girl
Whose real face is shown to the world

    hey the turn in the poem was a real good twist. Youve kept teh rhythm smooth, the lyrics simple and the plot so beautiful (though sad) very nice
