About the Poem

When someone you love dies, it's hard to deal with the pain. I had a very depressing experience of that sort. I was to the point of insanity, but with the help of my very best friends I was okay. This poem is about finding out your loved one is gone, and learning how to deal with the pain.

this really touched me i feel im getting close to insainty at times thank u their is hope 4 me and my family who allfeel this way
I must thank you for this poem. It touches my aching heart. You see, I lost my mother on Dec 12, 2005 and I can't seem to find my way to being alright. Reading your poem helps me know that there is nothing wrong with me. I guess like it says, we recover in our own time. Thank you again.
This poem really hit's the spot if you have ever lost someone who made you feel this way after you found out they were gone.


She ran home
Crying in the rain
Mournful from the pain
Except for the fear
Eating at her
Until she went insane
Caring people at her side
Hiding her fear

With every year she felt better
Having overcome her fear
No more screaming
Just soft pantings in her head
In losing someone, she lost it all
Not knowing the sad little noises she makes
Going on the hope that's left
Someone must tell her
