Together 'Forever'

Katie’s high
Her mouth is shut
But just look at her eyes
And then,
Her mother yells
“You can’t see him again”
She begins to cry,
As she tries to hold a cough inside
Katie asks, but it’s too late
She’s already doomed to her fate

She’s sent upstairs
As he’s sent away
Cold and heartless she lay
Tears stream down her face
As she heart starts to race
She’ll miss his laughs,
His smiles,
His hugs
All because they were caught doing drugs

Captain of the volleyball team
In the choir,
Front rows she sings
High is for planes,
It ruined Katie’s dreams

Two weeks later
He was found,
Dead from overdose
No one else around
Just Katie,
Who lay close

Katie’s dead too
She did the same

So apparently,
Together Forever they’ll always be

There was a 'say no to drugs' week a couples years back at my school. It got me to thinking, and so I wrote this. I just never got the nerve to publish it anywhere, so here it is.
