This is a very beautiful poem. my thoughts exactly!. I lost my best friend. apart of me died w/ him that day 2.
This poem really touched me because about three months ago in May a friend of mine was killed in a train-truck accident and this poem is something Ican relate my feelings about his death to.
I like this poem because. well I really don't know. But i do know that it is the best poem I've ever read. And I don't read a lot of poems. So that's why I like it. And I hope you make other poems like this one.

Dying Inside

Something so hard
goes straight to the soul;
it seems impossible to get over
and my heart is left with a big hole.

I'm trying to be happy, wearing a smile;
but I'm dying inside.
The world seems to be fading,
and I just want to run and hide.

Everywhere I go I see your face,
and realize how much I miss you;
and on the day you died
a piece of me died too.

I just lost my best friend in a horrible car accident a week ago today. I had her funeral today and it was a very difficult thing for me. I felt that day that she passed away a piece of me floated up to heaven with her and her 7 month unborn baby girl. So this peom touched me in a certain spot.
My sister died in a tragic accident on January 25,2005 In South Carolina. A part of me did die that day. I am only 11 years old and I miss my sister so much. She was my older sister and she was only 17 when she died. She was my older sister but sometimes she made me feel like she was my best friend. I miss her so much. That poem made me cry the first time I read it.
i'm deeply sorry for your loss and well i feel sad as well cause i too lost many during life but i like to say it this way it is a quote by well i don't exactly know who but i know it well "those who are born must die at a certain time and those who die are reborn in a next life" so don't worry whoever you lose they will be reborn somehow so don't worry ok that is all i think about when i lose someone i think of that quote and the one who taught it to me was my teacher from first period and besides writing helps in a way so you just keep on writing got to go see ya!
I lost a long time friend on this very day last year and this poem could not better explain how I and many of the people she's touched feel. She's in a better place and will forever be missed.
My best friend Nate dien 11-11-2004 and i miss him so much . he mean everything to me . we were dating for 2 years and we had just broken up that same wekk he died . i love your poem it touched me and nates mother
i really feel that way to and that is a really good one tho
I know exactly how you feel! Exactly a week ago i lost two friends in a car accident. There were four people in the car and out of the four people two died and of course they had to be friends of mine. The other two lived (the driver and the passenger). She was drunk (the driver) and its really upsetting cuz she killed two innocent people. I just want everyone to know that things can happen anytime. Please be safe by wearing your seatbelt and dont drink or do drugs. It causes alot of pain to people when something happens. I should know it happened to me.
my friend Lyndon just past away and i know how it must have felt

I read your poem and love it. I lost my best friend over two years ago - her husband murdered her - this poem says exactly how I feel - keep up the good work!
I thought it was wonderful. Just wonderful.
I've had a friend, who commited suicide last January. Now, two months later, the pain won't ease. Reading this poem made the memories all so real. It describes what I feel. It's good to have a way of sharing the pain. I hope this pain will be passing, and the memories remain. Thank you for sharing my pain Els
