The angel

Death wraps around her Like a tarnished ring on a finger She takes one last breath In which alcohol lingers The pills went down Too soon after The only thing she'll miss Is his sweet laughter The blade is in her hand For the cuts on her wrist Doesn't bother putting on a band aid It will all be over quick She has a smile on her face As she lays back and cries She has her notes Now she's saying a sweet good bye Her angel in the ground matches The statue now above her head "Never let them take the light behind your eyes" Was the last thing she had said Friends gathered to talk about the girl they use to know How she was too young Still had room to grow Dear, I wish you knew How we miss you terribly I think of you every night And I still talk of you,sweetly
