Jan 2019
She never meant to be ******
Some things just come easy
Every touch made her queasy
Hard lessons life taught her
Hold her back from the slaughter
Can't keep her head above water
Her tears fall like rain
Still she smiles through the pain
Till no feelings remain
Nothing seems to go right
No end in sight
Tried so hard to fight
A reason to live she can't find
Battles in the mind
Are often the worst kind
Living in contention
Constantly lost in frustration
The past she will not mention
She was destined for greatness
Before drugs became a weakness
Now she embraces the emptiness
Wrote this for a very good friend who died a few years ago
