True Story
Eliza, Age 12, Easton, CT

The tears dwell behind her eyes
A manic depression shatters her cries
Their lips pour out hate-filled lies
And the closest hope shouts its goodbyes
Sharp blade
Clean cut
Lights fade
Keep your mouth shut
Veins burst
Red blooms
Razor thirsts
Death dooms
The sun shines once more
Linoleum floors and crosses of red
There she lays on the hospital bed
There’s no escape now
“I promise,” she vows
Her 100 watt smile passes the test
Her mother’s weak heart pounds in her chest
Sharp blade
Clean cut
Lights fade
Keep your mouth shut
Veins burst
Red blooms
Razor thirsts
Death dooms
The bright light shines
We all thought it’d end gory
Just a bunch of lines
No way, true story.
