Before this moment

Before this moment

I thought I knew it all:

How it felt to hit a wall

                And having to crawl back,

how to cry when the joy was eminent,

how to be silent when the pain was rough

Before this moment

I thought my body could contain bliss,

                And handle agony

Before this moment

Before you cried and said goodbye

                While throwing your body off the bridge

Before I saw your little face disappeared into the December water

Before this moment

I thought I knew

what pain felt like











This poem is a response to the usual wonderful Tuesday Writing Prompt by Go dog Go cafe.

  1. Powerful poem. I know the GGB is the site of many suicides (there was a documentary about it) – there is nothing like that singular pain of losing someone in that way.

    1. Thank you for reading!
      Yeah, I’ve heard about that. I didn’t watch the documentary but I knew that they have to put up suicide barrier because of how often this often
