Double Suicide

No one ever saw what I tried so hard to hide

The pain and nothingness, so deep inside

I never expected that someone would break the shield

The façade I worked so hard to build

You saw through my false reactions and extended a hand

You told me you’d been through the same, things only we’d understand

I showed you my scars, inside and out

I told you my past no one knew about

You gave me a shoulder to cry on, helped me conquer my fears

And we were there for each other through the years

But even though we were there for each other, life was still hard

We couldn’t take it anymore, we were far too scarred

We loved each other, but the world had done its harms

And they found us in the river, we had died in each other’s arms
