She thought she was strong
She thought she had strength
Somehow she's lost her way

Can’t believe I let her
Be reduced to nothingness
Overlooked her pain

She was a wilting flower
In the garden of hope
Overshadowed by
Blossoming roses

(When you held me up
I felt completely invincible
And then you let me fall
Spiraling into depths of despair)

And I don’t know
How I let this happen

She told me that she couldn't
Live within her dreams
And so she decided
Her life was worth
Nothing at all

(When you held me up
I felt completely invincible
And then you let me fall
Spiraling into depths of despair)

I wrap you in my warm embrace
Tears envelope your face
No one can save me you said

And you’re spiraling
Into the depths of despair
No time for regrets now


The author's comments:
I have always written song lyrics in my head, and finally wrote this one down. This piece conveys my darkest emotions. I know there are people who can relate to it and I hope they will find some comfort, even just an inkling, in knowing someone is surviving through the same ordeals.
