The Life of Edith Cole

Her life came to a sudden end
for Edith Cole, my only friend.

She had lived with dreadful guilt,
around herself a wall she built.

Demons in her life she fought.
They'd bicker back and forth a lot.

To the heavens her prayers would drift,
though good and evil in her shifts.

She'd plead for punishment and pain.
Her suffering had kept her sane.

Edith hid herself away,
not to venture in the day.

In peaceful times to God she lept.
In violent times the Devil crept.

"Confess your sins" now said her priest.
Forgiveness felt so far from reach.

She saw herself through Satan's eyes,
as she stared back poor Edith cried.

Within the eyes of God she saw
his disappointment which she'd caused.

Edith tossed and turned most nights,
then drag herself around in light.

Memories of her life before,
upon her shoulders she now bore.

The only thing that kept her going,
were her dear pets, their love bestowing.

The guilt and pain built up her fears,
as she approached her twilight years.

I found her body in her bed,
her loving pets were also dead.

Edith found the peace she needed.
Her tragic life was now completed.

I hope to heaven they all ascend,
be with her family once again.

I know she's happy, now you see.
For I am she, and she is me.
