The Invisible Voices

One day we were laughing and smiling

The next I get a call 

She's Gone

Her life was too overwhelming

Pushed her

Over the

Edge

No one ever knew, she played it coy

Smiled when she needed too

But there were signs

We just 

Choose 

TO 

Ignore them

She lost weight

Sleep depraved

Staying up late

Living a life to please her family

She was not happy

But I knew this, I knew all her secrets,

at least I thought I did

Death by hanging

I could have helped her, saved her 

But 

I ignored the 

Signs and thought she 

Would 

be 

Alright,

Silly Me

Even the strongest people

Crack and are forced 

Over the

Edge

I thought she would 

Overcome them

She always 

does

But how long can you fight it 

Until 

the Voices 

Start to

Win

She may have lost the battle

But I can save another friend

Don't let your friend slip away 

and be held 

Captive by those

Invisible Voices.

        We all play a role in suicide, take time to love others because tomorrow they might be gone.
