We never really met,
You lived in Florida.
But you were family,
We were cousins,
How could I not be sad.
I wish we had known each other,
I wish you knew about my situation,
I wish you had known about my suicide attempts,
Then maybe we could have talked,
Maybe knowing someone in your family,
Felt the same
Knew what it was like to want to die,
And to have almost succeded.
That could have made a difference.
I did not know you,
I'm not gonna pretend like I did,
But once again
You were... are family
And will always be loved and missed.
| it's only natural to go through this. sucide.......gotta be one of the hardest. i've had my much younger list of attempts. seen others attempt too, never had relative/friend go through.|
it must just really suck.... but getting through and past is half of it.
it's honorable and shows compassion to have written about it. but don't get yourself stuck dwelling. i think aotof us would agree that there's nothing you have to hold against yourself.
i hope more people reognize that, and people comment for the realness.
poems good as a poem.

And the black cat didn't cause this either. Just as there were things he didn't know about your life, there are things you don't know about his. |
