There's Been a SuicideThere’s been a suicideThere's Been a Suicide by Pikmin22192
A suicide they cried but no one heard them
No one hurt them the police report says
There would be no trial for they thought the trials have already passed and they had failed
And they had been hung out to dry.
Hung. Hung from the rafters
from ropes as frayed as their wits
as split as their decisions when met with crisis.
Hung like the jury in their heads that determined their worth.
Hung from the balcony in plain sight but hidden from everyone that looks down on the world as if they were gods
because they never bothered to tilt their heads back and see their sisters their brothers their fathers their mothers their goddamn children hung in front of them like human chandeliers whose candles will never be lit!
A candle, they can’t handle the candle
The candle light vigil
that will be held
And held are the thoughts such as
“How could this happen?”
“Why would they do this?”
“What did we do wrong?”
What did we do
