Cierrah Smiles


You try not to stare,
You try so desperately not to give in and even take a glance,
Your already broken enough,
Knowing she's gone 
Your only daughter being pulled away in a black bag,  
You try not to,
You stand there lifeless and cold,  
Yet still breathing,  
You can only think of one thing,
'How did I not know...
How did I not know she was so sad; so broken,
She never even told you,
All you see in your memories is the same little girl who use to smile and laugh; who would look up at you and call you by the only thing she knew: mommy,
'How did I not know
How did I not know she was so scared; so weak
How did I not know she wanted to give up
You stand there,  
And realize your little girl is gone; and has givin up,
And it finally hits you,
She's gone
Suicide has taken another 
Bullying has destroyed another 
Life and death have taken its toll on your little girl;
And now she's gone...

    It's like my piece Stained in Red...sometimes the writer is able to become pure empathy...(The most talented kind) and place him or herself in a place, or time or situation that just is unimaginable. But Yet, you took us there and reached in and snatched out our hearts! Great Ink Cierrah. Outstanding Write! I'm very impresed and will have to read more of you and comment! ; -) Kelly.
