EULOGY

EULOGY

BEFORE YOU FELT SO EMPTY INSIDE,
ALL YOU WANTED TO DO IS DIE.
SUICIDE IS THE ONE THING YOU DID HIDE,
NEVER SHOWING INSIDE YOU DID CRY.
TO LIVE IS HOW YOU LIED,
THE WAY YOU CARRIED YOURSELF,
WAS NOTHING BUT A LIE.
NOW YOU ARE GONE,
WE ARE HERE TO SAY GOOD-BYE.

THIS IS MY EULOGY FOR YOU,
BEFORE AND AFTER,
THINGS ABOUT YOU WE NEVER KNEW.
I ALWAYS SAW YOU IN LAUGHTER,
NOT KNOWING SOMETHING UGLY INSIDE YOU GREW
YOU HAVE ENDED YOUR LIFES CHAPTER,
SUICIDING EVERYTHING YOU DO,
TAKING EVERY ONE ON A BIG SURPRISE.
TOWARD YOUR NECK YOU HELD THE KNIFE,
THINKING IT WAS FUN,
YOU DAMAGED YOUR OWN LIFE.
THAN TO YOUR HEAD YOU HELD A GUN,
CLOSING YOUR EYES WITH A DEEP YELL,
ENDINGS LIKE THAT ARE FOR NO ONE,
NOW YOU ARE IN HELL.

SUICIDE, SUICIDE, 
IS WHAT GOT YOU THERE.

DEATH TO THE WORLD,
IS THE THING, EVEN DEAD YOU DESIRE,
YOUR HEART TURNED TO BRICK,
AND STONES.
THE DAY YOU SET YOUR HOUSE ON FIRE,
NOW YOU SUFFER IN DARK ALONE,
BURNING IN HELL,
YOUR NEW HOME.
A EULOGY FOR YOU, I TELL,
WITHOUT REALIZING EVERYONE YOU LEAVE.
DOES NOT UNDERSTAND,
HOW FOR YOU THEY WILL GREIVE.

I.T.

    I really felt sad when reading your poem, SKAT! I lost a friend who hanged himself and nobody ever knew why. Suicide can never be a way out of problems. It is always terrible for the ones who have to live with it. Great write! Have a nice day and keep writing and thank you for all your comments...Gert

    damn...I feel utterly claustorphobic when reading these words...incredible imagery and deep. Loved it.

    Sad topic on which you have chosen to write this poetry. I hope a topic and not life. If life I am sorry for the loss in your life and the pain that you suffer from the tragedy. Keep the creative pen flowing. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work. Sara
