The Game.

November 8, 2010
By Anonymous

She ran to you, when all her hope was lost. You would confort her, and tell her it was all ok.

You watched her sit in the corner and watch the world pass her by.

You kept every secret, like it was some little game. Your little game, a game to be won.

You watched her scream. She would scream for someone just to come to her side, to fix all the pain, to end all the pain.

In and out they would come, to create all the pain but who was to pay for your little game?

You watched her die, and laid by her side. She knew not of the game, that game that you played.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

Wow, the ending really took me by surprise.

Beautiful. I really love the style you wrote this in. :)
