You just watched | Suicidal poem about love

a short story on suicide awareness

You were watching
when she cried.
You wanted to console her
but you couldn’t
because she belonged to someone else.
You watched
when he cheated on her.
You wanted to tell her the truth
but you couldn’t
because you knew it would break her heart.
You saw her bruises
the marks on her hands,
wounds on her arms.

You got angry
wanted to punch him in his face
but you couldn’t
cause she stopped you from doing that.
You loved her
but she loved him.
You knew that won’t change
yet you always loved her.
You knew he hurts her
you wanted to stop that
but you couldn’t
cause she loved him more than anyone else.

But with time
she got fed up
she got tired
of putting up a fake smile for the world.
She got tired of trying to look happy.
She was tired of hoping
that things might change someday.

Her love for him wasn’t weak but her mind couldn’t bear the torture
he did to her.
She realized he was no longer the person she was in love with.
So she decided to leave him
& along with him, she decided to leave everything behind
and sleep somewhere in peace
and she did, she left.

And all you did is you just watched.

All you did is you just watched.
You loved her and now she is dead.
But don’t worry
now she is free,
free from all the abuses.
Now her heart won’t break anymore
and the best part is
she became a star,
the one that shines the brightest.
Now she will see from the heaven,
she will see
who cries cause she is gone
who feels that he’s alone
who loved her when there was no one.
Yes she will see that person
but she is gone.

It might would have never happened
if you had stopped her from making the wrong decisions.
No, her parents won’t blame you
neither this society will do
but what about you ?
Won’t you blame yourself ?
Don’t you think it happened cause you just watched ?

Cause you loved her and were afraid that she won’t ever talk to you if you ask her to leave him.

Had you talked to her about her problems
she might would have known
that someone was there to listen her,
to listen to the screams which she hide inside her.
It might would have stopped her
from committing such a crime to herself.
She would have realized someone was there to lend her a hand
when she would have fallen down
who would have made her stand back on the ground.
She never knew
but now she does.
She believes that you were the one who truly loved her
She perhaps is sorry for not feeling what you had for her.
And she is cool
she found her peace.
Her soul now rests with no pain.
But does yours ?
Can you sleep knowing​ that
she is gone ?
You’re left alone
and you’ve got a whole life ahead
to blame yourself that
you just watched



This might be a story about a female but I want to ask all of you
To take of your loved ones,
To stand with them when they need you the most,
To let them know that as long as you are there they’ll never get lost,
To appreciate their presence in your life
To let know there might be pain today but it will heal with time
To tell them good days come you just have to believe
To tell them that they are beautiful and they make world a better place to live ✌.

  1. This was a great post. Sad, pensive and melancholy but wonderful! Great topic to take on. Sometimes it’s better not to leave important things unsaid and unspoken! Come read my “I Sit In Silence And Remember” and “What Lies Behind Unopened Doors”!
