Poetry Contest Submission – Samantha Reu


By Samantha Reu


Can you hear me?

Do you see me?

Everything I once knew, now gone from view.

I wont believe it, it can’t be true.

The last I heard things were okay.

How did it end up this way.

How did this happen?

What was used?

Just like that my whole world changed.

Full of grief and rage this world is deranged.

Such a sweet soul, such a good heart.

Its sad that she was torn apart.

Am I okay?

Will I survive?

Never a question you want to ask.

For now I live beneath a mask.

Sinking to my knees I can barely breathe.

From one decision she was set to leave.
