The Days Move on, Her Friendship Grows of Worth. .
Though in my Heart, a Part of me would Fail to Fully Accept it. .
Leaving Behind an Empty Void of unanswered Questions to Follow.
Being there for Her had Started to Drift off into a Place where
The Mist Reeks of all things most Dear to a Young Girl. .
Who was Ripped of it in Nearly Every Stage of Her Life.
My Silence had Begun the Day I kept my Knowledge at a Distance
Of the Sudden Death Upon the Boy I Held Deepest in my Heart. .
She Never Knew even of His Existence.
Some Days we would Cross Paths. .
I Felt Her Glance. .Sensed Her Thoughts. .
Still, I Neglected.
I Knew this would bring Pain toward Her. .Even so. .
I Avoided the Idea of Looking. .
Only in the Hopes to Find the Words I kept Hidden for so Long.
The Time Came when Her Endurance to my Silence was no more. .
She would Venture out to the Dark Place in which
I Would not Allow Her to Enter. .
Soon to Learn that I was nowhere to be Found. .out of Reach. .
By a Man not of that House. .
But a Familiar Visitor,
Who had Arrived Hours before.
She couldn’t Help but Wonder of the Saddened Look
Which Reflected Upon the Man’s Face. .
Along with the Little Information He gave Her,
It didn’t seem to be all of it,
For the Reason that my Absence had begun to occur each Day. .
Until Rumors Spread Behind those Closed Doors. .
Of the Quiet Girl. .Who Once Killed Herself,
For the Means they Knew not of.
But the Friend She Left Behind Understood more of Her. .
More that She had Wished to Forget. .
Because to Watch me Fade. .
Fade away Before Her Eyes. .
Would Only Hurt too Much. .
