Tiny Angel

Tiny Angel

"There it is" 
At that moment I didn't know whether to smile or cry
"I want to see it" 
I knew you were about to die
I wanted to throw a fit
She quickly turned off the screen
"Come with me" 

I felt as though I were about to commit a crime
this decision should've been mine

Days of denial yet I knew I was responsible for your survival
So many sleepless nights
Too much pressure
Too many fights

"Just relax, it'll be over before you know it"
It was too late to quit
I closed my eyes 
Feeling my heart beat out of my chest
I remembered him saying
“this is for the best"

Years have gone by
It still hits me from time to time
Harder than the drugs I consume
Living in regret
waiting for my life to resume
Hoping some day I'll forget
That I'm the reason your heart doesn't beat
All I can do is hope someday we'll meet

-O.D-

OD, 
You write beautifully. There's such urgency, and sadness in your poetry. Quite beautiful.
