In Memory Of Me

Poem By Kiersten Reilly

Who is that girl,
So still on that bed,
Her body so limp,
Her stare so dead.

Where am I?
This place is familiar to me,
My eyesight is fuzzy,
It's so hard to see.

My God, thats my bed!
and the girl... shes me,
Oh Lord, help me,
How can this be?

Mom! Dad!
What's happened to me?
There's pills on the bedside,
The blasting T.V...

Feeling for a pulse,
For a sign of life,
My skin is so blue,
The truth stabs like a knife.

I died for me,
I died for us,
No longer depressed,
No more looks of disgust.

So when they find,
The remains of me,
This note they'll find,
'In memory of me.'

Pain Of Your Betrayal

Pain strikes through,
A knife inside,
Poking and Prodding,
Cutting and slicing,

I see you,
Coming toward the car,

-My stomach flops.

Need, Want, Love

I need you,
Like nothing ive ever needed before,
I want you,
Theres nothing i want more.

No More Hurt

A silent tear,
Streams down your cheek,
You think unchecked,
But i see.

When I Think Of You

When im alone,
I think of you,
And all the things i did.

Waiting

I'm waiting for you,
I've been waiting forever,
You're never here,
But always on my mind,
