This Girl I Knew

There was a girl I once knew
I wish you knew her like I did
A type of girl that made me ashamed
With an attitude so nice and sweet

But she was so vulnerable to pain
Although she tried her best to be strong
Everyday was a struggle for her
But her pain wouldn't last long

She had her ways to deal with her problems
She used to share them all with me
But all we could do was communicate through texts
And that was only whenever I'm free

So one of me was never enough
As compared to all the stress she had
From just sharing everything with me
Everything started to turn bad

She told me how she started cutting
I started worrying for her life
I paid more attention to her
So she would stop using that knife

But I guess she never listened
Still cutting herself on her arm
So after all the pain she had
She decided to add more harm

And it didn't stop there
She started popping pills
I scolded her for such a foolishness
On planning to get herself killed

I told her to stop all those
And even made her promise not to do them again
She gave me her word but I didn't trust her
For she's constantly in so much pain

Then all of those talking stopped
Like everything was going fine
But I was so stupid and careless
I didn't even bother to find out why

Finally one day I got a bad news
And on the night I cried
It broke my heart to find out
That this girl I knew had died

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
