Dust settles silent
She cried that day.
Most of it I believe.
(I could see the sadness in her drug fueled gaze)
Left over powder clumped heavy on her face.
(I didn't tell her)
She asks for a hug.
Smiling I oblige.
Telling her it will work out fine.
Hell Broke lose later that day.
So pretty so sweet.
(I could sense her pain)
To much anger, to much strain.
(I watched her leave)
She lived no more that starless night.
The dust settles silent in the moonlight.
(Eternally I wonder If I could have saved her short short life)
