oh joel, why did you leave us?
you're like heremes the theif to us
show us how to guinely love with the cutest voice
then grab yourself away, like a kid and a toy.
i had no idea things were so bad.
we were so close together, you left me so sad
alone in the dark, searching
for my heart
because i want to mend it,
when i said 'i love you' i meant it/
what wre you thinking while you tied that rope around
your head?
that your family and friends would perfer that instead?
i had so many questions that i needed to ask
but i won't get to until the time i pass. . .

oh i'm so sorry. my prayers are with you, your family, joel's family, joel's friends, and joel. My aunt shot herself in the back of her head, and i know how hard it is to get over something like that

This really touched me.
Like you, I wrote love on my arm that day, not truly knowing what it was for. I confess I was just following the trend my friends were setting. I heard whispered words about teen suicide, or emo-ness... little did I know what it really meant. Thank you for opening my eyes and my heart.
LOVE.
