Treasure Island

Asper Reynolds

Sometimes I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder if your death saved me
Although I try to shut that thought out
You were after all everything I wanted to be
I thought you were what being perfect was all about
You are still so loved by everyone who remembers you
I still can't believe someone like you chose to die
I still have to separate the one who left from you
Years later the most random things can still make me cry

But sometimes I still wonder...

See I've been in that place where I don't want to live
When I feel like I'd be doing everyone a favor if I disappear
I've felt the ache of having nothing left to give
Where imagining the end is the only thing that stops the tears

Then I see your face as clear as day
I remember having the wind knocked out of me that morning
Forgetting how to think, how to pray
How days later my mother looked at me imploring
That I never would leave the earth in this way
And no matter what I will fight on
Because I will never make people I love feel this pain
When it gets dark there's always a dawn

So that's why I wonder if you saved me sometimes...

    Beautiful outpouring of the powerful emotions. The parting is painful but that's not the end of it, life goes on to complete the script given to us. (Report) Reply

    Thanks Mike. I really appreciate the support you've given me as I am learning to open up through poetry about things that I have never been able to talk about. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
