In This Bed
A Clock, The Essence of Life...

My best friend, who was really close commited suicide on 1*15*2007 and this was one of the hardest times i've had to endure, i'll miss her forever and I just want everyone to know that suicide is one of the worse choices because you leave so many people that loved you behind...I entitled this Some Last Words because she wrote a letter with this title to me before she left this world...
She sits on her bed,
Home all alone,
People keep on calling,
Yet she refuses to answer the phone,
Pen in hand running wild,
She seems to be kept busy,
The last letter she'll ever write,
One shot to bring silence into this night,
It read, " Some last words,
For you all,
I never thought I'd be the one,
To actually look down and fall,
I can't go on,
With what I've wittnessed,
Yes...I know it's hard to understand,
But reach out and grab my hand,
For if there's a heaven,
I'll be there to meet you,
Always watching now,
Until the day I greet you,
I wanted love so bad,
But finding it is rare,
Anything is better,
Than what I've had to bear..."
She let out a sigh,
One last tear,
Thats the moment when she cried,
Resorting to the gun,
Hidden underneath her bed,
Pumped the trigger hard,
Pumped it full of lead,
Blood ran cold,
Pulse intensly dropped,
A loud thunderous bang,
The world suddenly stopped,
A beautiful red rose,
Found grasped within her hand,
A symbol of love, life, and hope,
But for death this rose will stand,
*Amber Hummel* You're always in my heart...

|Chris this is a very tragic write, sorrowful to hear of the news. However, it is an even truer blessing that YOU do know this is not the way out of anything. Yes, it most definately leaves behind loved ones in mourning. For you know you are blessed although there have been difficult times in your life, life still goes on. Through your writing it is my belief that you will continue to be blessed, healed, and made whole again!
Sending you lots of love and hugs,
From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm

|I'm so sorry about your loss. This is a powerful, powerful write, Chris. It's so sad when someone feels so down that they think the only way out is to end their life. If only they knew there is always a tomorrow, and 10 yrs. from now the pain they feel will be long gone and a distant memory.

I'm so sorry for your loss and a loss to life. In her words, through you, I could hear her plea for love and help. This is so sad and a total waste of life. Please stay strong and always remember there's someone who loves and cares about you.

|A profoundly sad account Chris.
You're right ... suicide should never be an option, and there is always much guilt and heartbreak left behind when it happens. I pray for peace and equanimity to flood your life with the dew of heavenly understanding and forgiveness.
Light and Wisdom ...
