  1. 21. I Didn't Want You To Die

    • By Bruce Cassidy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2008

    I felt like it was my fault when my best friend committed suicide after quitting drugs because I accidentally overdosed...

    I miss you man; won't you please come back
    'Cause you were loved; didn't you know that?
    You saved my life; I could talk to you.
    I would have saved yours if only I knew.

  2. 22. 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.

  3. 23. She Finally Gave In...

    • By JJ
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2012

    This poem is about one of my best friends who committed suicide. I miss her everyday and nothing will ever be the same without her here. I should have said I love you back to her but I didn't.. I love you Sarah.

    The girl who seemed unbreakable finally broke.
    The girl who seemed so strong finally fell and crumbled.
    The girl who always laughed finally cried
    and the girl who never stopped trying... finally gave up......

  4. 24. Save A Life

    • By Emily Tekavec
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2016

    I wrote this poem when I had a friend who wanted to leave this world. I didn't know how to help him by talking to him, so I wrote him this poem. I wrote it 2 years ago, and still to this day he reads it and always thanks me for it. Maybe this can help one of your friends, as it did mine.

    You come to me crying, saying it's done,
    That life is pointless, I shouldn't have one.

    I tell you to stop, I beg and I plead.

  5. 25. 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....

    What happens after rape

    You look at her and call her a whore
    when she is fighting in this secret war.
    you do not know what she has been through,

  7. 27. 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.

  8. 28. Jim

    My brother Jim - age 46 - took his own life 5 years ago and left our family devastated. As far as we are aware, this was due to financial problems. A death by suicide is a death that leaves so many unanswered questions and so much guilt. It is hard to comprehend and makes the grieving process so much harder. Too many young people are finding it harder to cope with the pressures of society. This poem is just my story. There are many, too many more stories that are sadly the same.

    If I had reached out my hand,
    Would you have taken it that day?
    Could I have made you feel better?
    Could I have made you okay?

  9. 29. 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.

    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.

    You will never know how I feel inside,
    The pain that still resides,
    Happiness was once in my life,
    Those days have long since ceased....

  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....

  14. 34. 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...

    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.

    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

    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....

  19. 39. 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

    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.
