sad words...?

she dries her eyes
with the back of her dirty hands
lights a cigarette
and takes a long drag
between shallow breaths
as she figures out what's next
staring off into
the stretch of road beneath her bare feet

she cant seem to find the speed
to run far enough away
from all of these little things
that haunt her fragile memory
too much remains, too much remains
to want to make it through today

blades of wet grass
hit the soles of her feet
it's a better thought
than what she's been wondering
the ashes burn
so close to her fingertips
but she'd rather feel that
than the loneliness from all of them

she picks up the pace
but cant find the speed
to run far enough away
from all of these little things
that haunt her fragile memory
too much remains, too much remains
to want to make it through today

tripping over her own feet
with a heavy sigh she screams
cursing the world
"why me? why me?"

she picks herself up
but can't find the energy
to turn back around
and face all the little things
that haunt her fragile memory
too much remains, too much remains
to find her way back
too much remains
so she lays back
and lets the light take her
away from emotional murder
and her vacant smile's fading
her lifeless eyes are glazing over
as she goes
