  1. 21. Troubled Heart

    I have a friend who lost a son to suicide. I, too, have lost loved ones, even a small grandson, but realized through my friend that his kind of loss was likely the most devastating kind. His son was a great young man who unknowingly had trials, which brought him to take his own life. I wrote this poem for my friend and for all who experience such a loss.

    The moment you took your life,
    I felt mine ended too.
    If I could only turn back time,
    there's so much I would undo.

  2. 22. My Best Friend's Departure

    • By Carina Spencer
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2011

    My cousin was my best friend, and sadly, he took his own life. I wish I could have helped him and changed the outcome, but the past cannot be changed. This poem is based on my grief and my regret and also my love for him and his life.

    I jumped; you caught me.
    I laughed; you joked.
    I was down; you picked me up.
    I crumbled; you glued me back together.

    I lost a very dear friend to suicide... It has been very hard to cope with the loss. He was everything to me...and now, he is gone </3

    So lost, just as you were.
    As I made my way into the crowd.
    Black surrounds me...
    So do the many tearful eyes of my friends....

  4. 24. Stress Is A Killer

    • By Krista Ceci
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    I wrote this poem after I got in a fight with my mom about wanting to kill myself.

    Stress is feeding on me,
    Sucking out my soul.
    I feel my body weakening,
    it refuses to let go.

    About the pain and agony of a family left behind after the death of a loved one. there is not much to the poem, it gives you enough space for your mind to play with it.

    A bleeding wrist....

  6. 26. Why, What If, And If Only

    • By Lucy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2011

    I wrote this on the anniversary of my mother's death, she committed suicide shortly after her 50th birthday, loosing a life-long battle with depression and mental illness. I was only 21, I had spent my teens caring for her through her illness and as a mother myself now I find myself asking why it had to end the way it did.

    Four years have passed and still I have to ask myself, why, what if, and if only.
    Why did you choose that day to die?
    What if I had been there for you?
    And if only I had gotten there sooner....

  7. 27. Let Me Go

    • By Tiffany Lacour
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2010

    I'm 14 years old. I am living with major depression. I wrote this poem in class one day. It's a small look into my head. All day I have these awful morbid thoughts. I know suicide would be selfish. I used to cut, but not anymore. I have been inpatient hospitalized three times. I know all about what I'm supposed to do and how to deal. Except it's like my mind is a demon fighting back at me. My worst fear is my own mind killing me.

    Just a girl
    In this world while it twirls when it whirls
    her head in a haze
    can't seem to find away out...

    • By Rebecca MaCarthur
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2010

    I have contemplated suicide many times... This is how close I came, and how I felt..

    On a silent night.
    I lay in the dark, not caring, trying not to breathe.
    It's almost time, time to say goodbye.
    Never again will I shout in pain....

  9. 29. Life's Many Choices

    • By Brandon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2010

    I was inspired by my friend Becca to start writing poetry. I found it was a great way to organize my thoughts and feelings. This one was written after Holly broke up with me and I was extremely depressed. Please don't feel bad for me cause she asked me back out the next day.

    Life shattered in an instant
    Like fragmenting glass before his eyes
    Everything seemed so perfect
    Until it became full of lies...

  10. 30. The Demons And Me

    • By Levari
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2010

    Some things in life just can't be explained. The pain and sadness a person truly feels inside is unique and although we try to understand we never truly will. This poem was written about a traumatic experience in my life that has consumed 15 long years and counting. Sometimes it's just not possible to move forward.

    I got this feeling deep inside,
    Not sadness or hatred not even pride,
    A blank spot on a map,
    Where something use to be,...

  11. 31. A Silent War

    • By Lisa Miktuk
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2010

    When I was 15, my Dad committed suicide and I never got the chance to say goodbye. I want to tell this story to help others understand the value of time that they have to spend with loved ones. Always say "I love you" because you never know what may happen. It is the worst feeling in the world to know that they may not have known.

    Leaving us without word, nothing left to say,
    Mom and me are never going to forget that day.
    Something must have hurt so bad and I simply turned my back,
    There's so many things I want to say, but it seems the right words I lack.

  13. 33. No More Pain

    • By Reann Roden
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2009

    My uncle committed suicide the day after Christmas in 2007. It hurts so bad that he did what he did. I miss him terribly.. I don't and will never understand. To the people who are thinking about committing suicide you can live through anything. YOU can make a difference. Your family DOES love you, and friends. Even people you don't know...like me. Don't let your family go through the pain I feel right now and will for the rest of my life.

    Crazy thoughts in his head,
    all he wants is to be dead.
    Inside he's screaming, feels a lot of pain,
    day by day he's going insane....

    It is of a time when I had nobody to turn to and contemplated suicide. I eventually let myself open up and I have since overcome it.

    The pain that still resides,
    Happiness was once in my life,
    Those days have long since ceased....

    • By Lisa Clark
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2009

    What people don't realize is that a lot of people feel like this. Like they are trapped and no one wants to help them.
    Dedicated to all those who feel not a soul cares. Because someone does.. you just have to find that person.

    Taken from a dream,
    And placed in what I call reality.
    Scattered hearts lay about
    Waiting to be fixed again....
