A Choice Taken

The lights dim over the city
as a girl lies awake; 
Inside her thoughts are flowing
about all the choices she could take.

Her damaged mind is telling her one thing,
her pure heart another,
a forever sleep holds near
waiting on the opportunity to smother.

She climbed out of bed
and went to the mirror,
looking deep at an empty body
and brought the moment nearer.

She counted out the pills
and threw them back like it was nothing.
A tense and tired waiting
as she tried to feel something.

The lights are dim over the city
as a girl lies asleep
letting all the memories go 
as she took that sorrowful leap.
