She could end it all now
With one simple movement, a gentle grace
Then her eyes would never have to see his face
again- or would it flash just one more time?
Just to remind her of the pain?
 
"Let it all be over, I cannot cope, and it's not for a lack of trying
Is there is a way to escape, a way out from this Hell-
to another life, where I won't have to keep lying?"
 
She brings the glass to her wrist-
With one simple movement, a terrible grace
Then she would never have to feel the race
in her heart for what it was: would he come back to say he loved her?
Just to use her again and again?
 
"Let it all be over, I cannot hope, and it's not because I'm trying
Is there a way to escape, a way out from this Hell-
to another life, where I don't have to keep crying?"
 
She holds the glass at her flesh
With one simple movement, a descisive grace
Then she would have to feel the shame in her place
the tears of those who loved, those who truly cared when she did not
Solace, a promise that is also an eternal damnation
 
Could she do this?- Kill fifty innocent people?
With one simple movement, a terrible grace
Then she could feel them, the love in their caress, the moment they touched her face
the beauty of life; the bitterness that she had embraced-
Became little in the evanescent night
 
She set down the shard at her feet
With one simple movement, a gentle grace
Then she could have killed so many more than herself in this race
to the end, a false illusion playing in her conscience
One more thing to overcome, just like him
 
She could have ended it all
With one simple movement, a sacrilegious grace
