In short, my book of poetry deals with my emotional journey after my own suicide attempt on November 2003. They are not only therapy for me, but will hopefully have an impact on others as well.

My Suicidal Heart, Perplexing poetry/Creative therapy
By: Michael G. Howard
My Creative Therapy
My opening poem, "A Cats-Tail" is dedicated to my cats; whom have always been by my side through my times of struggles. Able to put a smile on my face and show unconditional love; when nobody else could.
For my past buddies in life: Brendan~Shadow
To my present buddies in life: Sadie~Buddy~Alexis
I also dedicate these poems to all people who have tried to attempt suicide and survived or those contemplating suicide. In hope of bringing peace and solitude to all broken hearts and dreams.
I have expressed my inner most feelings and emotions....after my own suicide attempt on Wednesday evening November 26, 2003
The following progression transpired my deepest thoughts over time, and finding my inner self; are the result.

"The Son - You Never Had"
I did not turn into
the son you wanted.
A football star, or groom to be.
But I only wanted
your love and attention,
and accept the fact - that I am me
To realize the devastating
life I had.............................
and understanding the way I feel.
For someone who contemplates
thoughts of suicide,
These feelings are very, very real.
But it's now too late
to fix these things,
which is really, really quite sad.
But there is still time left
if you truly loved me ~
to be the parents, I Never had.
