gods, i hope so...

...did she falter?

did she falter?
did she think-
'this is enough
to lay me up
for quite awhile?'

-just to get away?
in order to not stay
in order to not leave
this, her time of need
...did she falter?

did something make her stop?
pill after pill

'the rest can sit here
on the bed
next to me
'til i'm found
on the ground
on the ground
perhaps what i took
will be enough
perhaps it won't'

perhaps there were echoes
of a simple phrase, saying
{love, don't}

or perhaps there was an absence
no flicker of recognition to cross her face
no realization of whom she had interlaced
being too far away to feel my embrace

and so perhaps her mind was invaded
by thoughts of him, thusly persuaded
whittling her scope down to
nothing but her pain
'my life for you; it's all in vain...'

{well, i tried to save you-
...really, i did-
i prayed to god/dess, oh, forbid
i threw myself into you
that i might provide your rescue
tie you right back in a pretty bow
ribbons do come untied, as you know
i thought i had played my role well
yet night passed as nearly as she
with a refined horror that i had
an entire week to foresee}

there's no goodbye to speak of
-only one word-
that could have been so cruel
had she not lived through

talk to you tomorrow?


so, did she falter?

  This reads like a two-minds-one-body write... tied you back in a pretty bow... lol, yeah. Appeasing one for the benefit of the whole. The purchases of the day: new french coffee press, a dremel set, a garden hose and some daylily bulbs, and this ballerina teddybear... no I have no kids, don't ask, just ring the [censored] up already and let me go home while this catfight is going on in my head... I still have to get some sushi and an icecream cone on the way home...

Good to see you back!

  i feel someone so despondent over a relationship---she is contemplating suicide...then has taken pills....the speaker has stayed with her till morning...saving her for at least one night..

but the reality..she must save herself, she is the only one who can...

this finds itself with lines of intensity....and interestingly presented...not typical poemy fashion.---but good nonetheless...i like to see different, experimental placing on the page...

the mixture of prosy and poemy makes a dreamy state..and this piece could be likened to an uneasy dream.

  I think this is very emotive and well crafted without crossing into the "angsty" side of things too much. granted this appeals to me for reasons similar to yours but i still think this is composed well..
