I Remember...

No one was watching and no one was praying
but what does it matter anyway
and everyone could see as she stepped out of the car
that she hit just a little too too hard

the girls in the back were crying out they're dying
their bodies meshed with the car
you could tell they were hit just a little too too hard

so many dying
so many crying
no one was watching
no one was praying
but what does it matter anyway

I remember the day like it was yesterday
I can hear the squeal of the tires
and the ghost of the screams
the crying out loud
the bust of the seams
they all went flying flying
so high on life but they were dying dying

so many dying
so many crying
no one was watching
no one was praying
but what does it matter anyway

and everyone could see as she stepped out of the car
that she hit just a little too too hard
but what does it matter anyway

the rain poured down
as the night crept in
they closed their eyes for the final time
making a wish and holding each other tight
but what does it matter anyway

so many dying
so many crying
no one was watching
no one was praying
but what does it matter anyway

This was incredble. So beautiful and touching, I couldn't stop reading. The simplistic repetition was perfect, because anyone could imagine. I'm sorry for your loss.

it almost seems as if you're apathetic about living after your friend. you should live things more for your late friend. sorry if this offends. great piece.

I don't agree, if this is her way of getting out the sadness and pain of losing someone she loved then to me, that's great. I also really liked this and it's very moving.

Oh, I'm so sorry! Really, though, this piece was great. If writing is what you love, then keep doing it because im sure that's what she would have wanted. (:(
