The girl in red once has said

That she can read people’s minds

That their true pain is what she finds

I asked how she could see such signs

She replied “it’s like reading between the lines”


The girl in red once took my hand and lead

Me through the crowds of pedestrians

She pointed out some as “the Heart-Strains”

I asked why she came up with such names

She answered “they don’t follow their dreams”


The girl in red once let her tears shed

And held on to me so tight

She said that no one ever uses sight

I asked her why that would be right

She cried “because then they’ll see the light”


The girl in red once looked less fed

Her eyes looking more sunken in

Her body looking more frail and thin

I asked her how this happened

She whispered “this is my end”


The girl in red now lies in a bed

Made of silk and filled with roses

New beginnings is what her death proposes

I asked questions of how’s and why’s

She taught me the importance of lives
