… a little

She lays awake at night listening to the silence wishing she could go back.

His mind wanders drifting to the place of yesterday’s

How did they get here, how did they survive?

All the anger hangs heavy in the night air.

Wondering to themselves..

Had she been a little stronger

Had I cared a little more

Had she believed a little deeper

Had I loved a little harder

She lays on the floor at the scene of the crime, covered in broken promises and shattered dreams,

She’s holding the neck of an empty bottle.

Tears run down her cheeks

She feels a weight give way

She’s swallowed.

Had she been a little stronger

Had I cared a little more

Had she believed a little deeper

Had I loved a little harder

Alone in the dark, he falls to his knees

They laid her to rest today.

He clings to the 30 day chip she was so proud to own.

It was just last week she wore the smile

Tears flood to his eyes as he looks up and yells

Had she been a little stronger

Had I cared a little more

Had she believed a little deeper

Had I loved a little harder

The bed feels cold as he reaches out to touch her

He knows he will never feel her skins warmth again.

He blames himself, he knew her weaknesses..her desire

Why….

Had he not been a little stronger

Had he not cared a little more

Had he not believed a little deeper

Had he not loved a little harder

Would she be here consoling him tonight
