eulogy for a girl by Sarah Maria

by alllie

this year will be my eulogy for you

they’re gonna ruin you, I can feel it in my bones

they’re gonna break you apart bone by bone

and put back together a whole different you

these good words won’t be enough to detail all your suffering

good words won’t be enough

so I’ll recount your life throughout this year

beauty of your youth and

the beauty of your tears

Beautiful girl, I will tell of your able fingers

flitting between the black and the white keys of the piano

clutching a pencil and cradling a book

I will tell of your nimble fingers clinging to all the boys

no one offered you even one finger in return

I will tell of your heartache and your pain

Beautiful girl, I will tell of your dainty fingers

clinging to a boy to prove your own worth

I will tell of your pliant knees and

I will tell of your voice rough and soft and young

and of when the words would break in your mouth

under the weight of your tears

I remember your father’s hands on you

a thousand girls and a thousand boys at your feet

and then none

your mother and your father

and then none

you never had a friend

who would mourn you when you’ve gone

so I will mourn, a year

and then I will stop

what will become of you after that

will no longer be a concern of mine

I will not be around this time next year

so this year will be my eulogy for you

goodbye; — I loved you.
