STOP Suicide Poem

Best Friend Committed Suicide

I wrote this poem trying to describe in so few words what I was feeling the night I lost my best friend to suicide. My Tanner was an amazing person. He was the kind of guy who could light up a whole room. Losing him was the worst thing in my life I have had to endure so far. To anyone that reads this, don't ever put your best friend through this. They will never forgive themselves.

It started out quiet
Like a dull hum
Then grew like cancer
Till my body was numb
The shock
The hurt
The tears
And the pain
All to form something I could not sustain
A part of my heart broke
My eyes bled the tears
I cried out the memories of many, many years
They started out quiet
Then struck me like lightening
Attacking my soul more than ever so slightly
My face forms a mask
Shields this demon inside
A demon of guilt, anger, sadness
All in one night
It started out quiet
Then part of me died.

I remember earlier this year, in March, I wrote a suicide letter, and sent it to all of my friends. One of my friends I sent it to, I had been crushing on since I met him in eighth grade. I was in so much pain that day, and I couldn't think clearly. But the next day, everyone was freaking out. I apologized and everyone forgave me. But I will never forgive myself, because that guy I mentioned earlier was so hurt by my decision, we strayed apart, but now we're back on track, and I will never, ever think about doing something like that again.
