You’re Gone

You’re Gone

Why did you hide from me

Why wouldn’t you let me love you

Kept pushing me away

We saw you,

We were there for you

But you just shut us out

When your sleeves rode up,

We saw your pain

It was written in the way you hugged yourself so tightly

As if there was no one else that wanted to hold you

You needed help but wouldn’t take it

I’d have given you my heart

But you were too afraid of breaking it

The answer was so simple,

If you’d only opened your door

Instead you kept it bolted shut

You kicked the bucket away

When they cut the rope,

You took the pills

After they emptied your stomach,

You bit the bullet.

All the things you missed

Such a waste of a life

That could have been worth living,

If you’d met my eyes just once

But it wasn’t enough, this world

And maybe the choice shouldn’t have been left to you

Either way, I’m sorry

I miss you…

    1. I actually didn’t write this one entirely from person experience – I had a lot of friends in that state of mind a few years ago though, so I drew from that.
      I mainly wrote this for me, because when I get close to doing something stupid my biggest defence is imagining how it would be for other people. Putting that in writing helped me a lot 🙂
      But more than just for me, I wrote it for all the people who’ve lost someone ❤
