STOP Suicide Poem

My Cousin who had been living with my family for some time had been in a messy relationship. His girlfriend started making his life hell, but I do not know the rest of the reasons for him committing suicide. I took my sheer anger, depression and everything else I felt out into this poem, I hope you enjoy it.

Suicide Of My Cousin


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009 with permission of the author.

Yesterday last year, you were right here,
And yet now you feel so far away,
Your rotting underground but your face is in my head,
I don't understand it because you're meant to be dead.

I don't get why you did what you did,
But who am I to judge,
You had you're reasons and I didn't own your life,
But I wish you had thought of us.

Now I'm remembering it's getting harder to forget,
Getting my home to see my Mum's face all wet,
I ask myself questions that burn in my head,
I need safety, comfort, so I go under my bed.

The dull pain of grief throbs stronger every time,
I can't understand and I'm sure I never will,
I don't want to miss you you've committed a crime,
Because now when I think of you all I feel is a chill.

There's an empty space where you're meant to be,
There's a space in the puzzle that only you can fit,
I don't understand why you did what you did,
But the day you did it I stopped being a kid.
