The Fight

 

My body’s cold

lips are blue

why did I do this; because of you?

I feel the earth below me

like a pillow under my head

no knives, no guns, but pills instead

The bottle lays empty

cap unscrewed

what did I do? what did I do?

My spirit floats my body lays

my lover finds me

and he prays

I reach for him

I'm sucked away

like a deep crest of a wave

he pounds the ground

screaming why oh why?

I asked myself why did I?

My parents arrive, my best friend too

I thought to myself, What did I do!?

I look away. The pain’s to deep

my life is over!.. Because of me

I look back for one last glance

they zip me up in the body bag.

I did this to ease my pain

I lost instead of gained

as I look down at my family

I regret that night

my life stopped ticking

because of a fight.
