She sighs
At the threshold of darkness
Taking sips of cold sadness
Looking for the lost warmth of gladness

She cries
For a lost tomorrow 
Heart heavy with sorrow
Hiding beneath the depths of a shadow

She slides
Into the limitless pits of despair
Wings of courage torn beyond repair
Whispering a final breath of prayer

She dies
Defeated in a battle with depression  
Heart shattered to a million fragments
Taking the hand of sweet cessation
