Eyes look your last, arms take your last embrace, and you o'lips, doors of breath, place a righteous kiss.


you're in the passenger seat
he's driving you home from school
you feel so beat
yet look so cool

she's walking home all alone
ripped clothes. bruises on her face
sticks and stones have broken her bones
the past you cannot erase

the car passes by
there's a ping in your heart
you always try to lie
and say you don't remember the start

you see her ion school the next day
tears paint her face, garbage decorates her hair
that night, in bed you lay
thinking how it isn't fair

it goes like that for weeks
you pretend you still don't see
and you still will not speak
together is the key

another day passes, she's not at her locker
there's an announcement on the loud speaker
she died last night, there's an assembly
she died of overdose and bullying
and of all people, you miss her most
