Death by Celebration

October 18, 2008
By Brianna Acuesta, Brea, CA

Bows and paper
Candles and cake
Bags with ribbons
Parties for your sake

Salty tears
Broken dreams
Hearts ripping apart
Right at the seems

Ripping wrapping paper
Just like my heart
Ending happy candle wishes
Before they even start

My "special say"
Held high with glory
Crashed and burned
In a parallel story

But you won't ever
Know that tale
I won't put my troubles
Out for sale

So all you'll see
Are happy faces
While knife-to-wrist thoughts
Fill my mind's spaces
