Lost Spark

She tends to isolate herself when she needs people the most. 
She feels like she's a burden to others.
Afraid of asking too much, she doesn't ask for any help at all.
She does it all herself.
She bottles it all inside.
She never shows her struggles.

Little does she know, people can tell that she has lost her spark.
Her motivation and drive are not the same.
She lost a part of herself trying to stay sane through the storms.

That spark, as magical as it is, has to be wanted and worked for.
Hopefully, one day she will realize that the skip in her step, twinkle in her eye, and butterflies in her belly have all disappeared, and she will want them back.
