STOP Teen Suicide Poems

Poems by Teens about Suicide

The most heartbreaking sadness of all. How depressed and alone must a person feel to contemplate taking this drastic step. When a person feels that he has lost all control of his life, he may contemplate suicide. It is often a cry for help, the only way to make the world take them seriously. Sadly enough, attempted suicides are often seen as the only effective method to help a person get the help they need. For this reason people who feel that they have exhausted all other options may make a suicide attempt.

I'm Standing Here At Your Grave Crying
  • By Julie Bell

Remember that day
Back in the fall of '01?
I ran down that hill
Ready for my first
Soccer practice.
Not knowing anything
About the game.
And there you were
In the goal knowing
Everything possible.

No wonder you
Had that look
On you face, when
The coach paired us up
To run drills together.
But I think it shocked
You when I caught
On quick, and ended up
Doing the drills better.

Maybe that's why
You didn't speak to me
That night. It was the
Next practice when
You let me know
Your unforgettable name.

And almost as quick as I
Caught on the drills we became...
... best friends...

Countless hours if board games
Hundreds of sandcastles
Days spent hanging on monkey bars
Many sleepovers and campouts
Years of soccer games together
Sharing our first rollercoaster ride (ever!)

Soon to follow was our...
... love affair ...

Sunset walks at the beach
Summer nights by the lake
Countless hours teaching me
To skateboard. Down by the park

Where at 12 were shared our...
... first kiss ...

Many more "first's" we did share
But it was one of our "last's" that...
... changed me forever...

My phone rang, it was you
You were crying, talking about ending it
Just giving up, said you had
The rope in your hands right now
I talked and talked, trying to stop you.

Then I heard the chair fall
It screamed "NOOO!" your phone hit
The floor and the line went dead
As my heart drop tears fell
Like the first spring rain
When winter had just said...
... good bye ...

Flash forward to today
I'm standing here at your
Grave crying. Wishing you
a happy 16 birthday.

I've been in this situation before. I got help luckily. I'm very sorry for Zach. I'm not a kind of guy that cries, but this poem did. Is it bad I want it to be fake? Hope you're ok. Please...
