"Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia." ~E.L. Doctorow

Can we pinpoint a date
Can we say a time
As to when we knew
She was gone

It wasn't that morning
But a long time before
When I saw that she had stopped
And that her fight had left her

I picture the help she needed
And quiet screams she let out
I remember running from her home
Just to watch my father cry

When did we lose her
When did she leave
For it wasn't that morning
That everything fell apart
