~you'Re Dead Because Of Me~ - Poem by Cara Green

At times it may seem
That living life is to hard,
Mybody cries and screams
And my trust has been scarred
I'm sick of living but what else can I do
Perhaps suicide?
Everything would be better if I died
But what if I died where would I go?
Would I finally see you?
After all these years,
Through all my tears,
Would I finally be with you?

I saw you going under, I saw your hand,
I saw you reach for me, but I didnt understand
I didnt understand, but now I do,
You were reaching for me,
To help you onto safety,
At the time i didn't see,
And now you're gone, because I didn't help you,
You're dead because of what I didn't do

It's because of me,
That you died,
Because of me that you commited suicide,
ALL MY FAULT! ! ! ! ! ! !

    This poem so very accurately describes where I am. I could not have stated it any better. My wife took her own life on Dec 30,2007 and I have been stranded in the situation this poem describes so clearly.
    I want to thank you for describing my situation so succinctly.
    Take care/be safe.

    I think it's so wonderful that you write your feelings down. It's good to get it out (especially to a crowd that you don't know) . Very intense write. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
