She believed

She believed in love,
She believed in forever.
Now She sits alone,
Wondering how She could be better.
She takes some pills,
It's her prescription.
Doubling up sometimes,
Maybe a few more after ten.
She stops eating,
She wants a better body.
She dyes her hair blonde,
That's his type his barbie.
She sleeps longer,
To pass the days faster.
She still waits for him,
Alone every night.
Taking pills,
Not eating.
All tanned up,
With golden blonde hair.
Wondering why she can't be enough,
No matter how hard she tried.
She still waits for him,
In a pool of red.
Maybe in my dreams,
He will love me instead.
She drifts away into the night,
He never came to her.
Not even when the family cried,
All alone She lies in white.
Six feet under dirt,
She waits for him.
She believed in love,
She believed in forever.
