Echo of Suicide
Updated: Oct 22, 2020
*This blog post contains content of suicide.
I feel each morning as my consciousness slips back from its rest that my heart is heavy with sadness. Someone I love chose suicide, and now I am no longer my unaffected self. I feel the lonely knowledge that my happiness was tied to innocence. I live in a miserable state of wanting and missing. I want to go back to ignorance, before he chose suicide, to feel the unknown again, but I can't, and now I carry the baggage of experience, I have now been affected, I am an echo of suicide.
*Poem inspired by a father who lost his son to suicide.
