There’s a hole inside of me the whole world can't fill
I can hear my heartbeat reverberate from inside
waiting  for the moment I implode within myself
Maybe I’ll burn bright and beautiful
instead  of  this vacuum,  consuming and destroying everything that I touch
my flesh the event horizon

Another loved one gone
suddenly and with surprise.
She jumped to her death,  
picked her last breath
in full control of her demise.
I wanted to be just like her,
beautiful, strong, and wise.
But she's another loved one gone
suddenly and with surprise.

Left with traumas that are immensely heavy, too frail to keep dragging them along.
To flee is not an option
my woes have quick legs to chase me,
I fall to the ground in exasperation,
to wait for an able-bodied hero that will never come

Mom
I dreamt of watching you die.
I felt the misery of a world without you.
Now, I fear, I can't wake up.
Jessica H Oct 2012
I held her cold, dead hand
I kissed her lifeless face
Memorizing every moment
Knowing that I would never feel the comfort of a mother's love again.
Her selflessness was her demise
She neglected and gave all of herself
She smiled so big
She spoke soothing words
She needlessly apologized
All in her last hours

— The End —
