She Took it upon Herself

She rests her head atop
A pillow of empty pill bottles
Her eyes locked shut
Her skin snow white 
Her breath muted
She got sick of waiting for a happily ever after
So she took it upon herself
To take herself
And in a pool of prescription capsules
She broke into her nirvana
I don’t blame her
She just wanted pleasure instead of pain
She just had the guts to open the floodgates 
And let the glory shower over her
I don’t blame her
But I do cry
As I embrace her icy skin
Kiss her blue tinted lips
And stroke my hand upon her pallid face 
I just can’t believe 
She’s dead 
But beautiful
But dead

    This is incredible---written art, full of meaning and beauty. Your remorse is genuine. Very nice work.
