She Smiled...

She Smiled...

A Poem by Christopher Paul

Her legs hung like dead weights
Effects of all the pills she ate
Blur her eyes, dizzy her head
Thanks to the bottle beside her bed
She could feel her heart beat slowing
She could feel the blood flowing
Down her hand, on to the floor
Faint noise of people banging at the door
She looked up at the ceiling
Let her mind and body be controlled by the feeling
One last time her hand began to move
She knows where to go, though she doesn’t want to
She feels the scars on her inner thigh
In a heartbeat there are tears in her eyes
She feels the flesh that was ripped and torn
She feels the pain and the broken bones
For wounds heal, scars fade, but memories stay
And like a broken record in your mind, forever they’ll play
Her eyes begin to close, the sound begins to fade
She takes a deep breath, embracing this choice she made
The doors busts open to the sound of her final beat
People rush in and fall at her feet
Why did something so bad have to happen to this child?
But can you call it bad? When while embracing death,
For the first time in her life, she smiled?
