Gone

Gone

A Poem by Haydi Ember
"

Trigger Warning: Suicide

"

My neighbor’s dog never used to bark at me

But as I leave today, he does.

It’s as if he’s seen a ghost

I wonder what that was?

 

I used to smile at people as I passed,

And they would smile back.

But today no one even seems to look at me

I wonder why is that?

 

I used to text with my friends throughout the day

But today they don’t reply

They just won’t respond to anything

And I can’t help but wonder why?

 

My house used to be full of life

But today no one is home

Did they all go out together

And leave me here alone?

 

I looked in the mirror

And when I couldn’t see myself

I realized what I’ve done.

They didn’t leave me after all

 

I am the one who is gone.
