Heroin and My Sister

Just hold on

Please just breathe

Don’t let go

Please don’t leave

I won’t let him take you away

No, not today

As your eyes stay open

And your body is blue

As your limbs lay lifeless

And you’re freezing too

Just hold on

Please don’t leave

Don’t let go

Come back to me

As I cry holding onto your lifeless body

Asking why were you meant to die

Why you, why not me

I’ll never forget that night, as

The needle lay in your arm,

Plunger half empty

As I banged on the door, screaming

Let me, just let me in

Silence that’s all that you gave me

I’ll never forget that night, the

Argument we had I said I hate you

I said so many things I wish I could take back

I’ll never forget that night that

You passed over

Broke down the door

And there you were

Body slanked over

I’ll never forget that night I lost

My best friend, my sister, my

Ride or die till the end

From elementary to high school

We were so tight

Then that night we had a fight

Over drugs

I was selfish and so were you

I wish I was more selfish so it

Wouldn’t have been you

I’ll never forget that night

It changed my life

Just hold on

Please just breathe

Don’t let go

Please don’t leave

Don’t let go

Come back to me

So I can say I’m truly sorry

I’ll never forget that night

I chose black over a friendship

Over a sisterhood

I’ll never forget

Never

 

Dedicated to my other half. Forever half full, forever half empty, incomplete puzzle and you’re the missing piece.
