will you miss me? #poetry

[This is really dark… just wanted to warn you. But you know… darkness is my thing.]

Will you miss me
when I’m gone?
Or will I just
fade away
from light to darkness
slowly and quietly?
Will I slip away
to a new lonely
from this old lonely
without a whisper?
Will you look for me
and only then
I am not there?
Will you regret
never noticing
the pain I carried
before I disappeared?
Will you wonder
if you could have
saved me?
Will you wish
you could hold me
one last time?
Will you miss me
when I’m gone?

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Having had a brother commit suicide, these words have a deep meaning to me.
