They broke apart so long ago
It was she who caused it
Or so she blamed herself
Because he left her harder than a hit
She tried and tried to get him back
After all, they were still friends
But he refused to speak to her
So she decided it was the end
She said her silent apologies
But they were never enough
One last look at his photograph
Told her it was time to give up
What she never fully understood
Was that she broke his heart
When she told him, "We can't continue"
There he gave up and broke them apart
He trusted her with all he knew
And loved with all he had
But when she left for good
He just felt lonely and sad
Many years passed on
Until he grew old and died
He slowly came to Heaven's Gate
Waiting in line to cross the other side
That's when she appeared
Sitting on the bench nearby
Her patient hands in her lap
Eyes searching for whom she relied
He passed by her, head turned away
All she needed was a glance
She was up with arms around him
But he stood still, not believing in chance
His head remained bowing low
"You waited for me?"
He asked, with an air of nostalgia
His aura overcome with purely grief
She nodded, smiling wider than ever
"Of course! We're still best friends, silly,"
There was a sickening pause before
She continued, "Aren't we?"
But because he still could not meet her eye
He shook his head and went in through the Gate
Her heart cracked and she fell too far down
Both unable to accept their fate.
In case you didn't understand what was going on, let me explain. This is a story of two best friends, one male, one female, who started going out. When the girl broke up with the boy because she wanted to stay 'just friend' (and go back to the way they were), the boy grew cold and began to ignore her.
So the girl killed herself, because he had been her only friend. She waited for him outside of Heaven's Gate, refusing to go inside without him. When he saw her, he couldn't take the grief and went in without her, which broke her so much that she ended up in Hell.
Now they both have to live out their eternities never to see each other again.
