Choice

She can’t remember happy days

Before real life got in the way

The memories of people lost

Have left a hole within her heart

`

Shadows gather on her face

The smile is tight around her eyes

The steady beat within her chest

Is growing weaker by the day

`

Her mind is far from lasting peace

Which she left so long ago

The time is wearing at her grace

Each day she’s left more worn

`

Perhaps some day she will look back

And long to fix her past mistakes

For now she’s drowning in her ways

Lost within a haze of pain

`

Her spirit pushes at her now

Begging for a chance to change

She does not listen to it though

Much too little, far too late

`

The blood is rushing from her wrist

The bottle of her happy place

Lies empty on the floor

The rope is ready, taunt and high

`

The end is here, a choice to make
