There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a type writer and open a vein. -Walter Wellesley "Red" Smith

My cold dead body
Lies in here.
I cannot see,
I cannot hear.

My heart is gone,
My mind is blown.
This is over,
It will not grow.

My love for you
Dies with me
As I travel
Across the cold sea.

Falling Asleep, again.

I was laying in bed last night, and this poem just came to me! It was one of those Ah-Ha moments that I love! So I wrote it down, changed it a little, And there you go. Another poem :)

Maddie,                 After hearing what happened with the video and all. My heart was broken knowing that Mallory too is your age. I thought Oh Dear God how could I ever handle this and be there for my other two . I know God is holding you in his arms and your at peace now and no more pain. However please be with your mom, Dad and Family at this time. Especially your mom and Dad. They need you Maddie. Your such a beautiful girl and it breaks my heart that nobody reached out to someone when they saw your video instead they were all too busy passing it around. You needed to know how important you were to everybody and how much your Family and Friends needed you in their life. Shine down on ones in need like you needed Maddie. I am praying if we keep sharing this about you. Maybe it will just wake one person up and not hurt themself.  R.I.P.  Sweet Angel.

Well, I’m well.
Well, I mean I’m in hell.
Well, I still have my health
At least that’s what they tell me
If wellness is this, what in hell’s name is sickness?"

Rest in peace, Maddie.
