Euphoria, after the sting has passed
She cannot remember,
How she came to find this feeling
Doesn't care while the love buzz resides behind her eyes.
As she watches the trickle trying to defy gravity
The thought crosses her mind, to reach out, to taste
The coppery tang save it going to waste
Then numbness sets in as the pleasure subsides
She stares at the ceiling,
A thousand thoughts to send her reeling
While the reflection of tears glint in the shard by her side
Of the bottle of scent wrapped up so recently
The gift from her parents on this, her birthday
Ironic she supposed, in it's own way
How light now her head feels, floating away
Yet another pleasure
Far from her body’s shallow breathing.
It’s never gone this far before her tears by now are wiped and dried.
But today, fourteen years from the day of her birth
One slip with the glass cuts too deep through the flesh
And one more soul leaves too quickly
to leave a goodbye
Where she is now we shall ne'er know
But where she is remembered
Where two dark figures still stand weeping
Crystal teardrops filled with life within an empty shell of calm
Still wondering why a child would try to bring herself to harm
Not knowing why, the scars they found upon her chest and arms
Not knowing that she died, while trying to forget you.
