i’ve begun to think
there are quiet suicides
where there are no notes
had notes been left
have some explanation
these ghosts might abate
the stories told
hold small fragments of our lives
though concealed from us
we so quickly blame
broken hearts as cause of death
though some may be
what reason to live
if all that one has cherished
willingly chose death

  1. Brought me to tears. Having watched two people I love chose death, a long slow, lingering self inflicted death, full of spite and malice and pain for everyone that loved them, I have come to the conclusion that either I cease to care or I go under with them, and they don’t care…they are dead…Beautiful writing.
