Life is a tragedy

Life is a tragedy

A Poem by Aa Harvey

She lives in the shadows,

With no-one on her side.

She has always been down there;

She carries the pain behind those eyes.



She sings of melancholy,

Whilst wearing a smile.

She dreams her life will change,

But she will always live in the fire.



Her future is tragic

And everyone but her knows;

She is surrounded by friends,

But she is all alone.



She drinks from a bottle,

To forget her thoughts.

She sings from her black soul

And who would have thought?



Now she is gone from us;

We always knew this day would come.

The drink and drugs were her bullets;

Her life and thoughts were her gun.



She speaks in riddles,

In lines we can hear.

Her voice has the echoes,

Of a thousand years.
