So Nice, So Smart.

So Nice, So Smart.

A Poem by Ellie W. Montreal

You're so nice and you're so smart. You're such a good friend, I have to break your heart. I'll tell you that I love you then I'll tear your world apart. Just pretend I didn't tear your world apart.


Put down the gun.
Your life is no toy to be played with.
Do not act childish and pull triggers,
Whilst this world is so grey.
You have potential, you have ability.
You can do more, and you do not need to throw your life away.

"I thought you were smarter than this."

Walk away from the pills.
You can't do this anymore.
You have your whole life ahead of you, 
And you have people who love you. 
These pills don't love you as your friends do.
The weed won't remind you of your loving personality.

"Give it time and you'll be fine."

Author's Note

Ellie W. Montreal
This was written for two people I know who were involved with each other intimately and when the time came to grow apart, both individuals felt that they would rather die than be apart from each other. I didnt feel that was right, because I had felt that way before and as time passed my heart (somewhat) healed and I didnt feel that way about that person or I didnt think that way any longer. I just feel that committing suicide isnt the only way (except in certain situations).

Well, I don't really think suicide is the way out ever... I mean it's nice to have an "easy way out", but everyone knows the easy way isn't really the right way. When has anything ever been simple? Okay, Ellie, you know me and I'm always breaking things downs to their simplest form, but even that sometimes is complicated. Romeo and Juliet type dramas don't phase me. I mean I do think Romeo and Juliet is sweet in a way, but when people do that stuff in really life... well, it's just strange. We can't even trust Romeo and Juliet, they are
two teenagers that fell in love over 3 days and then killed themselves... Exactly.
