Mama always told me
Not to wear a necklace when I sleep
That it will twine around my neck
And it will suffocate me

I never listened and wore the one you gave me
Every day and every night
I even wore that necklace
The night we had our fight

The night you said goodbye
I didn’t take it off
Well that’s the night it twisted tight
Choking and making me cough

I knew I should’ve listened to mama
‘Cause that’s the night my face turned blue
That damn necklace almost killed me
All because of you

Thank you very much, I appreciate the comment. I have begun writing several novels but have yet to finish one. Hopefully I will someday, and I'll make sure you get one. :)
