Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.


I knew they couldn't stop you.
I knew this was the day God or whatever deity would call you home.
I knew when I looked into your calm green eyes,
you were ready.
I knew when we got word,
that you had collapsed,
That was the last time.

I knew when you when you told me,
"Your my granddaughter,
you always will be,"
That sounded an awful lot like goodbye.
I knew when I said "See you later,"
and you didn't answer,
that was your sign to me.

I knew when Linda came in crying,
that you weren't going to be with us much longer.

I was right,
But I wish I was wrong,
because I miss you.
And I didn't want you to go.

“Gods of Olympus.” Piper stared at Leo. “What happened to you?”
His hair was greased back. He had welding goggles on his forehead, a lipstick mark on his cheek, tattoos all over his arms, and a T-shirt that read HOT STUFF, BAD BOY, and TEAM LEO.
“Long story,” he said.”

Its extreemyl tragic wen u lose some1 close to u and u r an extremely brave person for putting a well written poem about it.
