When I last saw you

Bird In Red

When I last saw you

You were smiling.

I noticed something was wrong,

But I ignored it. 

I thought I was only overthinking.






My best friend told me

It wasn't my fault,

But it was.

It really was.


I'm yelling at the world,

Yelling at myself,

Screaming out loud,

Because I DID CARE.


I did not want this to go that way.

I would've listened...

But I didn't,

And now I regret.


When I last saw you

You were smiling.

Now, because of me, 

You will never smile again.

    beautiful way of sending a warning to those whose intuition works - to listen to the inner voice

  • Thomas W Case

    Powerful and poignant.

  • Cassie58

    I’ve often been told to stop over thinking, but to me it’s like a warning mechanism. This is such a sad poem. I am sorry this happened to you. You convey your inner pain to this reader.

    • Bird In Red

      Actually, this situation never happened. The person i wrote this about was saved and is still with us but...it was really close. Thank you anyway!

        You made it real. Thank heavens, it was fictional
