You can’t steal my heart
It was yours from the start.
You can’t force me to love you
If I already do.
You can’t break me down.
When I’m already wearing a frown.
You can’t make me cry
When I already want to die.
You can’t stop me from this deed.
I have to do it; I’ll finally be freed.

There’s nothing you can do now.
It’s too late for apologies.
Get on off of your knees.
When I needed you, you weren’t there.
Now I can’t inhale air.
Are you finally sorry?
It’s okay, sweetheart, don’t worry.
I’m in a better place.
I just wish I could see your face…

Tell my mom to hold back tears.
I know this must be one of her worst fears.
It wasn’t her fault.
I’m an adult.
I made the choice.
I have my own voice, I’m better now, she should rejoice.

My dad needs to pick up that dry cleaning in a week.
And in the family room, there’s that leak.
Just tell him that I love him, I always will.
Of this world, I’ve had my fill.
I really am okay.
Just give me a holler if you need anything.

Remember to tell Lily, that even though she may be real annoying.
She’s always been a great little sister to me.
She’s a smart one.
She’ll do well in life and have lots of fun.
She’ll grow up and fall in love with a great guy.
She won’t go right up into the sky.

And now you.
I know that I love you more than you do.
Just go on with your life.
Find yourself a better girl and make her your wife.
Forget we ever had anything.
Because really, it was just me that had everything.
You had nothin’
So stop fussin’
Let’s just face the facts.
I was never good enough for anybody.
I wanted to be right for someone, for you preferably.
But you left me lost and dangling.
On a rope in my room.
To face my doom.
Bye, baby.
Love, your Daisy.

The author's comments:
This was my first ever full poem written. I wrote it about a year ago now when I first got started into writing. Don't worry, I am not suicidal, even though my friends constantly tease me about that after reading this piece of work.

Though, suicide is not anything to be taken lightly. I suggest, you don't do what this girl did. Taking away your life is the most selfish act a person can commit. I know a lot of people say that and us teens are contantly reminded on the fact, but it's true and something to remember.
This was a fictional poem to let out some sadness I was feeling and I definitely don't suggest you use this as advice on stressful situations.
