Where were you when she was slipping?
When her fingers were losing strength.
When her body weight was too much.
Where were you when she fell?
Did you hear her lungs give out, and her voice crack,
when she screamed out for you?
Begged for you.
Pleaded for anything.
Did you watch her disappear?
Into the darkness,
she made her home in Hell.
Alone in her room, alone in her head,
wondering why the God she believed in has left her;
