Look Into My Life

This is my book of poetry. Most of these will be mine, some might be a friends or a famous poem that I absolutely love, but I will be able to relate to them all in some way. I don't claim to be a good poetry writer, hell I'm not even sure if you would call this poetry, but whatever. Writing is my escape. It's putting the things I can't explain to anyone else into words. I have been struggling over the past couple of years with life and I've found that writing out my feeling has helped so that is what this book will do.

If you comment and leave me a sentence to begin a poem with I would appreciate it. I think that way of writing and creating poems is fun and always interesting. It's something my English teacher does every so often and I really enjoy the assignment.

Some poems I will leave unfinished and often return back to them when I get more ideas.
That's all!
Comment and tell me what you think. If you'd like to submit your own, just message me! xx.

3. Her Final Goodbye

I watch my mother stand at the microphone

as she addresses the crowd before her.

Everyone gathered for one reason only,

to mourn the loss of her beloved daughter.

 

She looks up to the sky

as if she knows I'm watching.

Watching as she struggles to say

the words that fail to escape her lips.

 

She keeps apologizing

and shaking her head.

I want to comfort her

and tell her the truth.

 

Tell her that there is nothing

she could have done to stop me from pulling that trigger.

There is no saving someone

who doesn't want to be saved.

 

Her hands shake,

her heart beats faster

and her knees are weak.

She could crumble to the floor at any moment.

 

I watch as my mother struggles

and her eyes fill with tears,

she inhales sharply

and prepares to say her final goodbye.
