I am completely speechless and heartbroken. My good friend and fellow writer, PoeticSins passed away last night. I can't wrap my mind around it. Sickle Cell has claimed the life of another wonderful person and I can't even seem to put into words how I feel about this right now. Kee was a beautiful, genuine person and completely unafraid to speak the truth. I will miss her for the rest of my days, but I will also know she is no longer in any pain.  She was my rock during some very hard times in my own life and I just wish so desperately that I could have been there for her too during this.

But, she does leave behind her words. And I'll share some of them now:

Sickle CellAching, Sweating, eyes swollen from the tears
Seems I should be used to it after all the many years
Swallow 3 pills just to subside the ache
2 hours later still hurting and awake
I wanna be numb, please god no more pain
Like a little girl "I want mommie" I'm screaming her name
Pop 3 more to see how far till my body says no
An hour later can't take it anymore I have to go
Sirens, Voices, its really all a blur
Wishing I can be someone else him, him, or maybe her
Alcohol, Gloves, Needles piercing my skin
Sorry didnt get it, we have to stick you again
Pain to cancel out pain I'm already feeling
I want it to go away please some kind of miracle healing
Drip
    Drop I'm watching the drug corrupt my body as I go numb
No more pain "Ha Ha this time I've won"
2 hrs, 4 injections of morphine, & now a pump, here I lay
Like Calgon, I wish it all would just take me away

  Simply-MEI don't come in a certain flavor, size, or style
Sometimes I still have the tendency to act as a child
Don't try to change who I've become deep inside
I'm not about to change, for that I have too much pride
Love me as who I have grown to be, & not who YOU want me to be
I'm not a super-woman, I'm Simply Me
So accept me with my scratches, occasional faults, & dents
If you can't then it really wasn't meant
I REFUSE to become your puppet or your personal toy
If you dislike me, TRUST, I probably hate you more
  Up AboveWhen my eyes are full of tears
& I'm head on facing my worst possible fears
I turn to the only one that I know
The one who's helped me stay strong & grow
With him I know I can be my true self
I dont need to pretend because he knows me better than anyone else
I dont have to be wearing the hippest of fashion
Because he knows my true passion
He's the almighty, The giver of eternal sun
The creator of everyone
To him I can tell my darkest deepest secret
& I dont have to worry cause I know he will keep it
I come before him and bend on my knee
& He doesn't charge me, the lord has no fee
So when my eyes are full of tears
& I'm head on facing my worse possible fears
I turn to the one above
Because he gives me his everlasting love
