Dead is a State of Mind

She wore red eyes, smeared makeup and all black today
I knew there was something on her mind, but what it was she wouldn't say
So I said "I love you" and I hoped her sadness would fade
But my darkest fears came true, my nightmare came to life and she just turned away

No
I shouldn't be this empty
I shouldn't be broken-hearted, so defeated
No, I should be strong
But how can I be strong when my life is gone?

She'll wear heavy makeup, bright blue eyes and all white that day
I see it now, and I know she won't want to but she won't say
She thinks she has to spend with him forever and a day
My darkest fears came true, my nightmare came to life and she walked away

No
I shouldn't be this empty
I shouldn't be so broken-hearted, so defeated
No, I should be strong
But how can I be strong when my life is gone?

And she's walking away, and she's walking away
As I'm calling her name, as I'm calling her name
No, my life, my love, my strength, my hope
Desperately clinging to every last memory
No, my hope, my peace, my heaven, my home
I tried so hard to try and give her all of me

Shouldn't be this empty
I shouldn't be so broken-hearted, so defeated
But how can I be strong?
Gone, my life, my love, my strength, my hope
Still listening to the echoes of our sweet melody
Gone, my hope, my peace, my heaven, my home
She just turned away, no, she walked away, and everything is gone

I wrote this for my girlfriend, who might be pregnant... But it wasn't me. I'm a girl, how would that work? But anyways... She doesn't realize that she can't raise a child this young. She's only fourteen or fifteen... Still she refuses to see my point of view.

Yes, it is a love song :) I'm very, very bad at writing anything that would be about loving a person you're in a relationship with, so I took a different approach. She doesn't know I have a Teen Ink page, and I didn't post any names, so she'd probably be okay with it.

I think I know enough of hate- to say that for destruction ice- is also great- and would suffice.

Sorry about your girlfriend and all. I just now read your author's note. It sounds like you really care about her. I hope she isn't made about you putting this up.

I really would have liked to say more when I commented yesterday, but I had to get off. I really like how it was ominious and different from most love poems(It was a love song, right?). It was cool how dark it was.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

Wow. Awesome

This is so powerful and emotional, it's touching and heart breaking and so incredible.  Im so sorry you're being forced to go through this tough time, please stay as strong as your words are and take care of your heart, and never let yourself be silenced!  Keep pushing your views, someday someone will listen.
