One Step Closer

the wind,

whips her hair

as she stands,

at the waters edge


her bright blue eyes

stare into the distance

as she thinks,

of just ending it all


as she steps closer,

tears start to fall

its almost time

to just end it all


the pain

will all fade

when she takes,

her final breathe


one step closer,

to her death

it will all end,



one step closer,

away from you

away from the world

all around her


one step closer,

to just disappearing

without a trace,

of where she went


one step closer,

to dying

of taking her last breathe

and leaving you


one step closer,

to saying goodbye

to you,

and everyone she loves


one step closer,

to the edge of nothing

where everything she loves,



well she's been gone,

for a while now

and you still miss her

every day
















































    Thanks for a very challenging and poignant poem VICTORIA. I have lost Friends & Relations ~ through suicide and an unforeseen accident ~ some under 30 and it is very hard to bear. As your elegant poem suggests ~ I will never forget them ~ but I do regret the fact that thy are no longer HERE WITH ME ! That is the tragedy especially of SUICIDE. In the UK we have suicide counselling through the Samaritans and Friends of mine ~ who are Samaritans have succeeded in bringing many back from the brink. Thanks for sharing ~ every Blessing ~ Yours as ever BRIAN

      Thank you BRIAN! I have tried many times to commit suicide but I have never succeeded in doing so.. I'm doing a little better but I still think about it sometime.. and if it wasn't for my friends and family I would have gave up long ago.. I'm thankful everyday for having them in my life. I wouldn't even be here without them. ~Again thank you for your feedback on it. ~ Yours as ever VICTORIA
