She applies her makeup
With an elegant air
Combs until it shines
Her short blond hair
The latest fashion
Graces her demure frame
The clothes in her closet
Bear all the brand names

She smiles at the neighbors
As she locks her front door
Just like she's done
A thousand times before
She climbs in her car
The finest Roll's around
Such a beautiful lady
Whispers the whole town

She stops at a river
How peaceful it seems
She takes off her shoes
And abandons her dreams
She walks the last mile
The river claims her life
Such a beautiful lady
The most perfect wife

You are so incredible.

We all need each other.
We certainly need you.

What leads a mind to the final end is not always decernable. Very well conceived and written piece that happens almost every day.
