  1. 21. 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....

  2. 22. Thank You

    • By Sarah
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    This poem is a suicide note from a person choosing to give up without the support of a special person who was once around.

    I can't take it, it's come to me.
    That this life wasn't meant to be.
    As I take this choice and let myself go.
    I think to myself, how you'd say no!...

    One of my closest friends committed suicide last year. Gone Too Soon.

  4. 24. All On A Silent Night

    • 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....

  5. 25. Deadly Memory

    • By Allison Washburn
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2012

    This poem came to one day and all I could see was the picture at the end. The image was so beautiful and heartbreaking that I had to write something out that revolved around it.

    Hand shakes silently as I reach for the knob
    Pull my hand back, I'm too weak to do it
    Turn to walk away before I remember
    I'm doing this for me, I'm doing this for you...

    A poem I wrote to get over the suicide of a close family member/friend.

    but I am not sure that would change what you planned so long to do.

  7. 27. Missing You Forever

    • By Sanaz Shokravi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2008

    I wrote this poem 2 weeks after my brother took his own life. It has been a year now, but the pain hasn't gotten better. These words are just a way of expressing the pain.
    He is missed-- Mehrshad Shokravi (October 31, 1980-October 8, 2007)

    It's been two weeks today
    that you finally got it your way.
    You left us here, without a farewell,
    leaving behind just your smell.

    • 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,

    On August 26, I lost a close friend, and I wrote this poem to let out some of the emotions.

  10. 30. Stay With Me

    When life gets too hard, and existence itself seems endurable, why should anyone hang on? When you reach the point where even the thought of the people you're leaving behind can't stop you, it is impossible to look back, to see the light in the world. I have a friend who has reached this point many times and attempted to take her own life on multiple occasions. There is so much I wish I could say to her. So much. I know it might not make a difference, but it helps me to know I tried.

    How can I tell you
    How can I say

    What you'll miss

    • By Paige Bryant
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2015

    I've lost people in my life because of suicide. The more I think about it, the more I think it's partially my fault for not being a good friend when they needed one.

    That girl's heart aches,
    Her smile is fake.
    The cuts sting,
    Her phone rings.

  12. 32. 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,...

    My life is now my delusion,
    A world made of fantasies.
    Happiness is no longer the illusion,

    I wrote this shortly after one of my childhood friends shot himself. it's hard, but I learned from it daily. but I don't want to dwell over it anymore, I want to use it to help. as well as a few other hard things that have happened in my life.

    A smile, a laugh
    a tear, a frown
    a sad young boy none knew was falling down
    he was falling way too fast...

  18. 38. Richard Cory

    A narrative poem, "Richard Cory" was first published in 1897, as part of The Children of the Night. It is one of Robinson's most popular and published poems.
    The poem describes a person who is wealthy, well-educated, mannerly, and admired by the people in his town. Despite all this, he takes his own life.

    Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
    We people on the pavement looked at him:
    He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
    Clean favored, and imperially slim.

  19. 39. A Friend's Secret Suicide

    • By Emma Deary
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008

    This poem was written on Halloween Night, 10/31/07 at 9:45pm. At the time, I could not stand my friends and I wrote a goodbye letter to them. At the time, I was suicidal. This only worsened until the breaking point in December. December 31, I called it quits. I told my best friends in the entire world I hated them. Looking back on it, I did that because I was too depressed and I only wanted to be left alone forever. Now, I see this only caused much worse problems. As now, I have lost three of my best friends and it is much too late to get them back. I didn't kill myself obviously. But I was so close. Extremely close, and this goes out to my three old best friends, who never knew the real me.

    To my (old) friends: AH, RW, KF

    You were all part of my life,
    In the beginning you were always there helping me along, inch by inch....
