For the happy girl who committed suicide. Mental illness is not always noticeable, it usually isn't at all, until we see it in our memories.

This water pulls me under

This current holds me down.

How can I find the surface?

When my body, is so far gone.

 

These waves they hold me hostage

These rocks they bar me in.

How can the sun not care?

When it’s up there, glaring down.

 

This air, it can’t escape me

These lungs will not burn out.

How can I not feel hopeless?

When the silence, drowns me out.
