"We Don't Notice"
We don't notice until they are gone
Do we all feel invisible after so long?
Suddenly there are questions,
Which we have no answers to
Where do we end up....
All I can see is you
I can understand
The anger, resentment, & pain
I know not even your worries were in vain
Please help me figure out
What you were trying to prove,
It must have been nothing
we all lose.
Sorry for the loss. I know it hurts, the pain that you couldn't stop it... Don't blame yourself or anyone . Time heals .. My prayers are with you Shelleelyn
It's very sad, of course. I hope his family and friends know he probably wasn't trying to prove anything. Maybe he just couldn't bear whatever was going on in his head another moment. Maybe if he'd gotten through that moment (or stretch of similar moments) to the next, he wouldn't have done what he did at all. The word, "unbearable" (impossible to bear) can be at the root of suicide.
Shelleelyn, there are always those who suffer in silence and sadly they always will, listening beyond our comfort zone to go beyond te wall of silence is hard . Sorry for you losing your friend though.

I know the feeling of losing someone to suicide. I've lost 5 friends and a close relative all to suicide. Last year two of my friends committed suicide. It was a pretty rough year for me, but I survived the pain. I myself committed suicide when I was 17 years old. I was lucky to have a second chance. I've been through a lot. The amazing thing is I found solace through it all. I find my strength in God. I am so sorry for your loss and I loved your poem. I wish you the best.
This was actually the second friend I'd lost from suicide...it never stops hurting, just gets a little easier over time. I'm so happy to hear that your attempted suicide was unsuccessful!! I am glad you liked the poem, check out my hub: 2nd wind for more!
Beautiful poem and condolences on going through such a difficult time.
A friend of mine right after high school committed suicide. It stays with you for a long time but the pain I felt from that experience and having gone through it allowed me to recognize the signs of depression in another close friend years later. I was able to help him make it through in one piece because of my earlier experience.
Take care of yourself and your friends and remember it can take a long time to process all the feelings involved with suicide so don't rush yourself and keep writing those beautiful poems!
I lost a best friend and my father to suicide. I understood Dad's motives, but I'll never understand my friend's. She was young, in a great relationship, had a beautiful home, and a great job. She left behind 3 children. I talked to her all the time and never saw it coming.
Wow, I'm sorry to hear that. It's always going to be one of those mysteries that we'll never fully understand. You have to be pretty lost to resort to those temptations. Life is full of wonder, even on my worst day. I hope you are doing well, thanks for the response!
Just want to say my condolences goes out to you. I have not experience a lost this way. But losing a love one to any form of death we still share equal pain. All i can say is walk by faith not by sight and the man above will walk with you.

Of course I won't but how would you react to someone who threatens to do this. Someone I know, fairly well, committed suicide this year. He had money worries and I feel really guilty that I did not take up his offer of carpentry work from a flier he put through my letterbox. I didn't know he was in...

This was my situation. It doesn't matter if it is a spouse, a partner, a significant other, a lover. It doesn't matter if you were married, engaged, dating, divorced, separated, fighting. What does matter is that if you ever have the misfortune of being in this situation, you probably...

How do you prove anything?!!My conclusion is that NOTHING is really factual or true. NOTHING can be completely proven.......But what say you?

if you commit suicide will you be sent to hell or will God show mercy and grace to you?

What happened to Chris Hansen and "To Catch A Predator"?I was watching a parody on South Park regarding Chris Hansen. I am curious now. What really happened to 'To Catch A Predator' ? I thought it was a show that was helping children. I thought they were trying to take...

We hear often of atheists claiming that have looked for evidence of God but can find none but what would convince them? How do they go about investigating? How do they expect believers to prove it to them when it can only be proved to oneself and not by another?
