A Life of Pain

By: Mandy Lynne Maddox

You sit there crying inside...
But we can't see you.
You wait for us to hear your screams of despair,
But it's just not loud enough.

We couldn't see the signs till you were gone...
Now that we have lost you
Every look, touch, or memory of you haunts us.
I see the cries for help.
I hear the screams of agony.
Why couldn't I before?

You are gone now,
Maybe happier than before.
Suicide kills a piece of all of us...
Everything takes a toll.
