The Irony Of Life Is That The Moment You Feel The Most Alive, Is The Moment You're About To Die.


I remember
You,
Yelling,
Begging for your best friend
To still be alive.

I remember
Me,
Crying,
Begging for your “Best Friend”
To be dead.

I remember
You,
Holding the gun up to your head,
Regretting what you had done,
Wishing it was you that were dead,
Not him.

I remember
Me,
Knowing you were wrong,
Knowing it was the way it should be:
Him dead,
You alive.

I remember
Me,
Wanting to tell you everything,
Wishing I could tell you everything,
But knowing it would hurt,
Hurt you too much,
So I kept it a secret.

I remember
You,
Unable to live life,
Knowing you had killed your best friend.

I remember
The day,
The day you had enough.
The day you couldn’t take it anymore.

I remember
That day,
Like it was yesterday.

I remember
The time,
2:27 AM.

I remember
Waking up to a phone call from your mother.
Telling me
That my best friend was dead.

I remember
The feeling.
The feeling I had
When I heard the words come out of her mouth,
The gut feeling,
At the pit of my stomach.

I remember
Thinking,
That I never had the chance.
The chance to say good-bye.
The chance to tell you how good of a cousin you were,
How good of a friend you were.
The chance to tell you
It wasn’t your fault,
He deserved it,
You never saw the side of him I saw.

I remember
The side that I did see.
The side that he never showed around you.
Evil,
Cruel,
Manipulating,
Not really a friend at all.


The author's comments:
My cousin, also my best friend in the world, inspired me to write this poem. He saved my life in so many ways that night, and I never got the chance to tell him how much he meant to me, how much he still does mean to me. If he could only have read this before the tragic incident that happened, everything would be different...
