I met her in a meadow, it was late in the night
We spoke of the demons we tried hard to disguise
We spoke about what we were hiding inside
And twelve hours later I watched as She died
?

One hour after I met her she told me her name

Another hour passed and I noticed her pain


By the third hour she explained she was all by herself

By the fourth I could tell she needed some help


?

Five hours had passed as we sat in the dark

The only light coming from the passing by cars


?

We sat and we talked, shared the story of our lives

About how we woke up, kept breathing, and somehow survived


?

Six hours since we started she showed me her arms

I wasn't suprised to see the scars of self-harm


Cuts and bruises covered her pale skin

She told me how she had let the razor blade win


?

On the seventh hour she told me a secret

I crossed my heart and promised to keep it

?


As the eighth hour past she began to grow weak

It caused her pain to simply speak


?

At the ninth hour she started to cry

I think she knew she was going to die


?

Ten o'clock came and she regained her self-control

But I could still sense the hurt in her soul


?

Time ticked by fast as she spoke of her past
She'd told me so much and it was only the start


?

As the night wore on we began to whisper

The wind blew by and together we shivered


?

Soon she was freezing and I could tell she was sick

But she only smiled as away her life ticked


?

That's when she told me about how she was "ill"

And I didn't know what to say or how to feel


She was hiding something, I could tell from her eyes

She smiled slightly but it was just a disguise


Then she spoke softly and I was struck by what I heard her say

She told me her illness was taking her away


?

I hardly knew this girl, yet she and I felt so close

But soon her being was nothing but a ghost

?


It was 11:59 when she finally slipped away

Her eyes wouldn't live to see another day


?

And although she is gone I know she is well;

For eleven hours I knew her, And I'll Meet Her At Twelve
