wasted

12 0 0

so young

so smart

such a waste of a young heart

oh how you have changed

no longer with that crooked smile

that could save someones life

i noticed the way your eyes dilated

when you saw her

and water up when you saw her with another

you got much less sleep

and your grades seemed to drop

as you did with class

i always wondered what

you would do when you were absent

you piled up more bracelets

and tried to cover them up

yet i still saw

every night i wondered if you

saw my imperfections as i did yours

but i guess not because

you never woke up to realize i was right

here.
