A sad poem about death.

Stretched hearts pinned down with broken glass

 

Fighting for every pathetic beat

 

Living in the present, but constantly haunted

 

By the way things used to be

 

 

 

 

So now they face the truth

 

They didn't know that behind a convincing smile

 

Brewed thoughts of hate and pain, fear and death

 

A most fragile frame, praying for her last breath…

 

 

 

 

The ignorance they held tight to

 

Is suffocated by shaking hands…heavy tears

 

As they turn their back on their friend

 

Walk past the pile of roses

 

 

 

 

En Everest of petals to salute her beauty, commemorate her years

 

They don't have the courage to look back

 

To see how they let her fall

 

They will forever carry the burden of slaves

 

 

 

 

And those who stand by, are the ones who didn't understand

 

As they watched the coffin lower in her grave…

 

They all whisper…”She was so young, it's so sad.”

 

“I would have given her everything she never had.”

 

 

 

 

No…they didn't understand that now…

 

They live their lives mourning in black

 

But she…is gone…

 

And will never miss it enough to look back.
