Life

Poem By katie taylor

My life is turning over again,
and one again it's no better.
I'm breaking the skin, shedding the blood,
And my heart is turning black with every tear I cry.
The skin is broken, the blood is shed.
My heart is black, withered and dead.
There's no turning back now.

Counting how many turns I've taken,
It's impossible to count up half.
The numbers keep adding up
but yet it doesn't feel right..
The skin broke the day of his death.
The skin keeps breaking.
The tears fell to the floor when he was born.
There's no saving me now.

Brave Girl

I was always brave as a little girl
I sat alone at lunch everyday
I never was one with many friends.
I hope and prayed the day away,

Eulogy

There will be no eulogy for this weak, wretched girl
For nothing was found of great character
There will be no memory of this young, lost girl
For her whole life, she was dead.

Goodbye

So it came the time to say our goodbye.
We knew very well that it'd be our last farewell.
His eyes were red and tired from holding back the tears.
And his words were weak and empty from his medication all those years.

Fragile

Don't touch, for she may break;
The fragile little girl, whose heart you could never take.
Her eyes were cold and empty, her heart lay on the bedroom floor.

White Lie

And once again the quiver of your voice makes it so hard to believe what you say.
Maybe it's the long distance phone calls that keep you up till 4 a.m.
Or that you hate so much what you've made me.
