"I don't do fashion, I am fashion." -Coco Chanel


Today I saw her
In my dreams
Today I wept for her
We all did.

It's only been a few days
But the pain is still unbearable
Don't say her name in vain,
She was beautiful and unforgettable.

On a dark, cold Friday night
She went to bed with doubts
Didn't wake the next morning
Hung in a closet full of clouds

Her young brother found her
Suspended and could not fall
He screamed and screamed around her
We all painted the mural on the wall

Specialists were brought in
Students left in tears
I wouldn't let them see it
But it kills me even to hear

To remember her smiling face
Wonder what made her break
How a girl so lovely
Could make such a devestating mistake

So this is for you
Tinu
You changed our world in the small time
So young and so brave
So unknowingly sad

I wept for her today
I cried inside the stall
My friends don't understand
No one understands anything at all

She took her life
It's hard to believe
We all feel the strife
And no relief

It is my only hope
That someday she will recall
The way we all looked at her
The way that she was loved

The author's comments:
A friend of mine commited suicide this past weekend. She was a beloved part of my school and we will all forever miss her. The signs of suicide weren't there for her, and for many they won't be. So I can only say love everyone close to you, you never know when they're going to leave.

This was...amazing.  So sweet and melancholy, I felt the emotion behind the words. I'm so sorry for your loss.

There is always worry, yourworstnightmare. I just found out that my aunt commited suicide a couple days ago, they have yet to find her body. Spend as much time with your friend as you can, just in case. Thanks for reading and liking my work.

Well, for some reason the first paragraph was copied twice and I don't know why...so ignore the third paragraph. :)

I have a friend who was really depressed one day for some reason. She wasn't talking, and she wrote a pledge to herself. It was pretty long, but I remember a few things that it said. The one thing that stood out to me was, "When I finally decide to kill myself..." I think that was what stood out to all of our friends, too. Every time she's depressed like that, I'm afraid I won't see her the next day of school. And now it's summer vacation, and we're going to different schools next year. I'm terrified I'll never see her again.

I guess...your poem reminded me of that, as much as I tried to forget it. But now...thanks to you, I won't try to forget it. You were right about loving everyone close, and I hope she doesn't decide to leave this summer.
