Friends

We talk, and talk, and talk, and talk

Everyday we make sure to keep in contact.

Then one day we skip the chatter.

It’s nothing strange,

I must have been busy.


Soon days go by without a text.

Our once constant chatter has seems to have died.

Not too much later I find it hard to say hello.

Avoid you when I spot you from across the room.


But when I finally try to open up,

About the pain, or lack of, I’ve been feeling

You answer with no more than an ‘oh’.


‘oh’

This was a mistake,

Telling you my darkest secret.

‘oh’

What’s left of me starts to shatter.

‘oh’

I was asking too much when I asked for your help.


Not that I expected you to cure this unseen illness.

Maybe I just wanted the comfort of someone willing to fight this with me.

My mind’s a battlefield and I’m scared that I’m losing.


So when I think about suicide,

The only thing I hear is ‘oh’.

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...
