An Angel Died That Day

She died in the cruellest of ways 
An undeserved death for the person she was
for the lives she'd changed and the friends that loved her unconditionally. 
It was like the world had been torn to shreds.

Even after she died she didn't get the dignity she deserved. 
Her cold lifeless body left on the cold hard ground, untouched. 
Just a thin, dirty sheet shielded others from seeing her body,
She lay there three days, treated without respect, without care.

Eventually she was taken away, put in an ambulance and driven off
Her friends, the people she cared for and loved not even able to say goodbye
one day she had been there, the next she was gone.
Their tears fell unrelenting, feeling the pain she could not express. 

The people that loved her most fought for the truth
they were hungry for justice.
But there were others, bigger , with more power 
who were bent on covering up the crime, so the dark side of humanity prevailed. 

A beautiful soul died that day, it shouldn't have happened.
A beautiful soul was left out in the cold, it shouldn't have happened.
A beautiful soul was disrespected, it shouldn't have happened. 
but the beautiful soul remained a beautiful soul nonetheless.

She had so many goals, aspirations, wonderful things to come in her life , it was merely beginning.
 But her dreams, her life were cut short by the punishing and inhumane world she lived in. 
The world in which she lived wasn't designed for such a kind and generous soul,
she had so much to live for, but too many people were intent on destroying her flame, 
And that is why an Angel died on the desperate, and doom ridden day.

I wish you knew

I wish you knew 
that every night 
as my tears fall 
they fall only for you 

I wish you knew 
of the nights I've spent 
stupidly thinking of you 
and all we could be 

I wish you knew 
how I completely love you 
with every last part of me 
and how it pains me 
that you will never love me
like I love you 

I wish you knew 
how much it hurts thinking 
of your stupid smile 
your loving soul 
how you make me laugh 
and the butterflies I feel 
just thinking of you 

but it's no use 
us doesn't exist
only in my head 
its a lonely reality 

I know you said you love me
but that's as a best friend
and I wish you knew 
how much I hope each time 
you say I love you 
That it's the same way I do

and I wish you knew 
that I wonder all the time
if I will forever love you
worried 
that I will never 
get over you at all

Broken

 

Fragile and shattered
like fragments of scattered glass 

cracked and broken 
lay the shell of her former self
for she wore her demons like clothes

the lines and creases on her face told the story of her past
the blinding and foolish emotion known as love had hurt her 
one too many times
yet 
she loved him still through everything

she was too cracked and broken for him to see 
that he was the missing piece of her almost perfect puzzle 
and instead of fixing her 
he left her, broken and open 
afraid that if he stayed he would shatter her more

by abandoning her he left her hurting 
left her defeated and broken.
 
she would never be whole again 
part of her would forever be gone 
but it was this imperfection 
that made her simply perfect

If only she had seen that was the case 
then she wouldn't have remained as broken as she did
