Double Suicide

June 28, 2009

No one ever saw what I tried so hard to hide

The pain and nothingness, so deep inside

I never expected that someone would break the shield

The façade I worked so hard to build

You saw through my false reactions and extended a hand

You told me you’d been through the same, things only we’d understand

I showed you my scars, inside and out

I told you my past no one knew about

You gave me a shoulder to cry on, helped me conquer my fears

And we were there for each other through the years

But even though we were there for each other, life was still hard

We couldn’t take it anymore, we were far too scarred

We loved each other, but the world had done its harms

And they found us in the river, we had died in each other’s arms


The author's comments:
Now, this one is a little different than otehr things I've written. It's not entirely mine, not entirely original. I had read a story one day on a website and I liked it. I had just written this one day and when I finished, I realized that I had based this on both personal experiences and from the story I read. I believe it's one of my best poems.
