Running Away

September 3, 2011

As i lay to sleep,


on this gloomy night,


i think of you,


with your eyes closed tight.


i hope they open again,


for if they never do, i will lay with you,


never again to wake from the slumber.


lives left behind.


tears will fall.


we'll leave empty spaces,


running away from it all.


we'll be together,


wish smiles upon our faces.

I wrote this when I found out my exboyfriend (who I was still in love with) had overdosed by accident. His "friends" told him he wouldn't get hurt. They let him take the poison that almost killed him.
