My husband of life, my sons father committed suicide just recent and my father did too in the past.
Suicide death leaves a crippling aftermath, I am barely hanging on for dear life.
I am suffering my greatest grief right now as my best friend perished within
30 days of the love of my life...
This poem was just written in Anthony's memory and my longing
to be with him...
Nothing grand but something to put on paper.
I have not written much in several years, I too am battling depression!
Mental health is a serious epidemic, if gone unchecked it can kill you or someone you love,
check on your friends and family often,
make sure they are really alright-
I've lost 2 loved ones to suicide and almost myself.
Make sure you tell your loved ones that you LOVE THEM and OFTEN!
Tender, sweet mercies
settle upon my shoulders
an imploding baptism
Glimpses of a spiraling crown
calming the death hunger
collapsing a suspended sparrow
clipping velvet wings
Forbidden, forgotten music
an orchestra of strings
and pretty ivory things
vibrations of memories
Whimsical notes and melodies
spinning silver silhouettes
and the air beneath
our sterling souls
dehydrated, drawn to your ghost
laced together thru eternity
thirsty for forevermore
