at the bottom of a swimming pool

 

 

she had the look

of a beauty queen

that was bound to

be found dead at

the bottom of a

swimming pool

 

of course,

i wanted to

know who

the fuck she

was

 

turned out to

be just another

lost cause more

interested in her

instagram account

than actually living

 

too bad, she had

most of what was

needed to be a

legend

 

 

 

 

two stubborn souls

 

 

i picture your

dead body

laying next

to me in bed

some nights

 

it’s not hate

 

it’s tragedy

 

two stubborn

souls that

couldn’t get

out of their

own way

 

i only wish

to be dead

as well

 

many, many

years too

late
