WHAAAAAT! NO FREAKING WAY! I've said it once, I'll say it again: YOU - HAVE - A - GIFT, girl! This is one of your best, if not your best (for though I would have some tweaking comments for some of your others, I have absolutely none for this one!) It's spectacular! Fantastic! Well freaking done!

This was something of fascinating beauty. You delivered such a terribly tragic story, and created awareness and utter thought. I must say that your writing is one of exquisite style and message. Well done!

It's okay to feel like you're dying. The important thing is, that you survive whatever you are going.. read more

Truly no problem.
Thank you for existing and sharing your work!
your perspectives are sensitive and insightful ..it shows in this poem ..i love the brutal honesty and street smarts of it ..the tragedy all the more real for those who experience depression and suicidal thoughts ..and the whole array of mental emotional illnesses ... i say it again Lilly of the Valley ;) your voice is so relevant and important ..needs to be heard over and over ..family members many times bein the ones most guilty of not recognizing and not doing anything to help ... God bless you dear friend ..i am so glad we have met here at the Cafe .. a place rich in expressions and differences ...the New Year is upon us..be well...:)

Somethings cannot be fixed. Doomed to die in self pity and loneliness. This is a realistic and sad view of a life. I liked your words and thoughts. You made me think and ponder.

You are welcome dear Poet.
The thing is, I recently lost someone I liked to suicide. No one said a thing about the person's struggles because no one took it seriously. They thought it was a sadness that would pass... Oh, how wrong they were.

Now, that person is gone. I'm left with a guilt that will never ease, knowing I could have done something, just something. You're right, no one can fix it. The only way to make things right is if I suffer on that person's behalf, as an atonement for my failure.

I don't think people truly realize how suicide is like a virus. Once someone does it, it causes a chain reaction of thoughts, making other people wanting to meet the same fate. It does not solve anything, it only causes more pain on the living, those who have to live with their silence and failures to lend a helping hand.

It all seems inevitable. I hate to think so negatively, but this month has not been kind. And, I sincerely apologize if it seems I'm burdening you. You are such a lovely writer that deserves more than the world. If you left this world, I could not bear the sorrow, even if I had just encountered your writing recently.

Keep writing and keep living, even if it hurts. Find meaning in yourself. ^ ^

Your writing is so pure and clear. I often find myself saying what you've already said, but you use fewer words.

This poem is a punch in the face to humanity, as it should be. We're supposed to watch out for each other (that caveman, evolutionary thing), but most of us avert our eyes when we see another suffering. It's inconvenient or too painful, too difficult to consider that might be us. So, we ignore it, our delusional minds convincing us another person will do what we should have done. Another original, impressive piece from you.
