AN: ok this has been sitting on my other pc fore like 3 years...probably longer. I finally remembered to upload it.

The song is "Bring me to life" by evanescence, i do not own the song but the ficlet is MINE!

"Breath No More"

"How can you see into my eyes like open doors

leading you down into my core"

Blue eye fluttered closed with a sigh. She hated it when they stared at her! No matter what she did to hide her emotions they always seemed to show in her eyes, or so they said. 'Must be a very dark place they see...' she thought.

"Where I've become so numb without my spirit sleeping

until you find it there and lead it home"

She sat down at the table with her tray in hand. She quickly took a bite and swallowed when she began to cough. "What? Take too big of a bite for your mouth, or are you already trying to get rid of it?" some one said laughing. Her eyes narrowed and she forced herself to smile. He smacked her on the back and she instantly frowned. "I hate it when you do that." she muttered. "I know." he answered back with a smirk.

"Wake me up

wake me up inside

I cant wake up

wake me up inside"

Walking back from lunch had sucked. She had gotten pushed aside and lost track of her friends, swearing as she lost her footing and tripped over her own shoes. "Damn I hate myself!" she growled, climbing up the stairs. "I can't wait to get home."

"Save me

Save me from the nothing I've become"

The rest of the day was spent in a daze; she was like an emotional zombie. She felt nothing and merely existed. Her friends commented on that and she would always give a fake smile or laugh. She thought it was funny that she could fool them so easily.

"Now that i know what I'm without

you can't just leave me"

She hugged her friend and became uneasy when his gaze lingered longer than she would have liked. She smiled as her other friend showed up, effectively breaking the uncomfortable silence. The bell to the next class was close and she excused herself. "I'll see you, bye." she said absently. "You better be here on Monday!" the guy shouted at her as she walked off. Her smile instantly turned into a frown for the second time that day.

"Breath into me and make me real

bring me to life"

The drive home was the same as always, nothing special. No one paid attention to her, even when she got to her stop and got off. The sky was as gloomy as she felt, and she switched off her cell phone as it began to rain.

"Wake me up

wake me up inside

I can't wake up

wake me up inside

Save me

Call my name and save me from the dark"

Lightning and thunder clashed in the dark sky and the light rain became a massive downpour. The girls face adopted a ghostly smile when her clothes started to weigh her down. "Of course I would notice the change in weight..."

"Bid my blood to run

I can't wake up

Before I've come undone

save me"

The rain made it look like she was crying, if she was however, it would have been with blood.

"Save me from the nothing I've become"

Se walked inside the apartment once the door was unlocked, she took off her shoes and sighed. She felt cold and empty inside and the chill of the apartment was making it worse. She silently walked over to her room and closed the door when she was inside.

"Frozen inside without your touch, without your love

darling only you are the life among the dead"

She headed to the bathroom and quickly changed out of her soaking wet clothes. She dumped them in the basket and was about to head out when she spotted something that she had left on the counter. She picked up the item and pocketed it.

"All this time i couldn't believe i couldn't see

kept in the dark but you were there in front of me

I've been sleeping a thousand years it seems"

The apartment's phone rang before she could even step out of the bathroom. She let it ring in favor of sitting on the carpeted floor in front of her TV. The phone stopped ringing and the answering machine turned on. 'Hey, you called, so leave a message. I don't care - beep' there was a pause before the voice of her friend spoke.

"Hey... I was hoping that you'd answer but... I guess not... I just wanted to... well... Just be in school Monday, ok? I got to go, bye." beep beep beep

"Got to open up my eyes to everything

without a thought without a voice without a soul

don't let me die here

there must be something more here

Bring me to life"

She smiled slightly. He could always tell when something was wrong…But she didn't think it would matter this time. This time was different. It was...final. She felt guilt that she hadn't spent more time with her friends that day. She figured they would flip when they discovered what she did... or maybe they would be grateful? She really didn't know.

"Wake me up

wake me up inside

I can't wake up

wake me up inside

save me"

She decided to stop those thoughts. They wouldn't do her any good. And its not like it would matter in a few minutes anyway, she had already made up her mind. Not even thoughts of her 'friend' could sway her decision, besides there was nothing concrete in his presence anyway. They all left in the end. But this time, she would leave before they had a chance to.

"Call my name and save me from the dark

wake me up

Bid my blood to run

before i come undone"

She slid the pocket knife out of her pocket and stared at it. The blade was clean and shinny, not like it had been two days before. In the back of her mind she realized that she might be making a mistake, but she rationalized that everyone thought so beforehand. She switched the position of her right hand and poised it over her left wrist. She shut her eyes and sighed as the blade cut deeply into the exposed flesh.

"Save me

save me from the nothing I've become"

A hiss escaped her lips and she cut even deeper. Tears formed at the corner of her eyes, falling swiftly to mix with the blood and steel. The girl took the knife out and hesitated for a moment before plunging it back into her wrist. She relaxed her grip and fell back against the wall. She glanced one final time at the picture of her best friends that sat by her bedside, before her eyes glazed over and she ceased to breath.

"Bring me to life

I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside

Bring me to life"

AN: yes, its a very short fic i know. But I wrote this in class in 10th grade (I'm out of school now, yay!! I passed!!) and i wasn't about to fix it up. :)
