Would You Regret, Or Let The Dead Bury Themselves?

Would You Regret, Or Let The Dead Bury Themselves?

A Poem by jumbie's #1 fan
"

we can all ask what if, but why don't we just do it right the first time?

"

You breeze through life

Able to capture the heart of any girl you desire

You turn on the charm, say a few sweet words

And instantly she's yours

 

I fell into the same trap

I gave everything

Heart, mind, spirit, strength

To have it mean absolutely nothing to you

 

"Somebody has to stop it"

"Somebody has to"

I think to myself as I stare at my arms

Running my fingers over the scars

 

Why should you allowed to affect me the way you do?

How come I was the one to fall completely head over heels in love with you?

I can't feel anymore

I have no strength left

All I can do is sit here

And pray for death.

 

 

 

 

Three days later

You turn on the news

To see me,

The girl you so willingly used

 

Cause of death: SUICIDE

You know the real reason I died

 

If you hadn't lied

If you hadn't done what you did

If you had even one ounce of compassion

Dying wouldn't have been my latest fashion

 

Would you cry?

Would it haunt you

Knowing you were the one

Who caused me to die?

 

Well, would you?

 

Every night, the same nightmare

Would you care?

Would you take back the things you said?

Could you ever love anyone

With the word MURDERER hanging over your head?

Would you too, wish you were dead?

 

Would it bother you for the rest of your life

Knowing I would have loved you enough to become your wife?

Instead, you broke my heart

Taking everything I knew and tore it apart

 

This is the art of breaking

Knowing your pain, forever,

Would be mine for the taking.

 

But it's not.

You'll continue to get away with it

Hopefully you will learn.

All I can do is sit here and wonder

What if?

I loved this poemmm!
I can relate to it.
I can also tell you used alot of emotion and thought into wrighting it!
To me it seems all of us have been hurt in some way or form we all just don't realize it.
And in this poem it should make people understand that what you do effects the other person too.
Although, most people don't care.
I think if they read this poem of yours, they would get the message very clear!
Well excellent job!
I give you two thumbs up ^-^

That's my favorite part... It just... It makes it all perfect...
Full of emotion! Wonderfully written! Applauses and roses for you!!!!!!!!!! (^-^)

There just only little thing... "...enough to become your wife?"
I don't like the word wife on it... (Damn, now I'm never going to get married... hahaha)
Erm... (serious face)---> (-_-)
