there are too
many pills in this
world and too
much misery in
the human heart
but that didn't mean
that you could just
up and leave when
we both know it
could have gotten better
and i miss you like
a wolf misses her pack
or a goddamn dragon misses
her fire and i'm sorry
that i can't give you
a bouquet of jasmines
(they were your
favorite, after all,
because that was
the only princess
with a pet tiger)
because poppies are
too cliche and i'm
sorry i wasn't there
when all you needed
was a hug and for someone
to whisper "it's okay,
you're perfect enough
for me, don't listen
to that junkie bitch
who just happened to
give birth to you" and did
you know that i'm still waiting
for a reply to that one
email about the world's
best puns because fuck,
there's a stubborn part
of me that still refuses to
believe that you're gone.
I really can't.

So this is just words strung together as I think about you.

I miss you.

I wish I could have been there.

I know I should try to forget but I just need to write this for you.

This reminds me of Ashley. Thank you for this. :l And I'm really sorry that your friend died but saying that won't take the pain away. Just keep writing... It helps.

I've never understood why people get angry at someone who committed suicide. It seems awfully selfish, to immediately focus on how their death affects you.

I'm sorry your friend died, btw

I'm sorry that you're going through this. There is no words to fix your heart, but I just want you to know that you're strong. That this poem is beautiful. That I cried. That you should never give up on your dreams, or writing. That everything is done, and you should live for her now, if not for yourself. I'm sure she would want that. I hope you feel some sort of comfort from what I'm saying, for I do care. -internet hugs- Hug

Also, I know I recognized your name on here. I absolutely loved your poem, "How to love a girl who can't love herself." It was beautifully and perfectly executed. It's in my favorites and I shared it with my Facebook friends, and they absolutely adored it. Had countless likes. So I Hope some of them checked out your work. You deserve it.

This is beautiful.
My heart aches just reading this...
I can feel the emotion in each and every line.

The title of this poem just perfect.
I completely ignored the title until the end,
and I feel that made the finishing blow on my soul.

I hope by writing this you feel a little closure.
