Dear Sam,

In this letter I have included a poem. I thought this would be the best way to express my feelings to you. I know that I should have been by your side, I should have protected you.

I blame myself over and over.
My heart shatters when I think about what they…What I did to you
It was so consistent I had no idea what to do, day after day of taunting and teasing it becomes unbearable so I joined in
I know it must have been the ultimate betrayal but what was I supposed to do
When your mom called with the news I felt as if my soul slipped away and my voiced dissolved
I dropped the phone, I was paralyzed with grief
My eyes began to burn, my visions became blury and warm tears began to slowly flow down my face
My heart felt as if it was lit on fire
I my brain was spinning, all I could do was breath trying to undestand what came over you do such a selfish act
I ran up stairs to my room and locked the door
I made a fortress of pillow
Like I did when I was five trying to escape from the frigid world
But I didn’t work the imagination that I once had that would turn this from a pile of pillow to an enchanting queendom had vanished
Anger engulfed my body
I through the pillows and jumped on to my bed
And closed my eyes remebering the good times Swimming in the lake
Watching movies
Staying up late just talking
All the things I can’t do without you
No one gets me except you
I’m alone
What do I do at school?
What can I do I’m stuck on this horrible world alone I thought we were supposed to go through life together
Maybe you had the right idea
Maybe I should join you…

See you soon,

A little bit confusing, did 'sam' die? Suicide? What does he/she mean by I might join you?

I liked that it was a poem.
