I wrote this poem a couple of days after my friend was killed. It talks about how I felt after his death.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Poems about Death

Dying Inside
Something so hard
goes straight to the soul;
it seems impossible to get over
and my heart is left with a big hole.

I'm trying to be happy, wearing a smile;
but I'm dying inside.
The world seems to be fading,
and I just want to run and hide.

Everywhere I go I see your face,
and realize how much I miss you;
and on the day you died
a piece of me died too.

    I just lost my best friend in a horrible car accident a week ago today. I had her funeral today and it was a very difficult thing for me. I felt that day that she passed away a piece of me floated up to heaven with her and her 7 month unborn baby girl. So this peom touched me in a certain spot.
  • Chelsea
    My sister died in a tragic accident on January 25,2005 In South Carolina. A part of me did die that day. I am only 11 years old and I miss my sister so much. She was my older sister and she was only 17 when she died. She was my older sister but sometimes she made me feel like she was my best friend. I miss her so much. That poem made me cry the first time I read it.
  • sahuly
    i'm deeply sorry for your loss and well i feel sad as well cause i too lost many during life but i like to say it this way it is a quote by well i don't exactly know who but i know it well "those who are born must die at a certain time and those who die are reborn in a next life" so don't worry whoever you lose they will be reborn somehow so don't worry ok that is all i think about when i lose someone i think of that quote and the one who taught it to me was my teacher from first period and besides writing helps in a way so you just keep on writing got to go see ya!
  • Joe

  • Desiree
    I know exactly how you feel! Exactly a week ago i lost two friends in a car accident. There were four people in the car and out of the four people two died and of course they had to be friends of mine. The other two lived (the driver and the passenger). She was drunk (the driver) and its really upsetting cuz she killed two innocent people. I just want everyone to know that things can happen anytime. Please be safe by wearing your seatbelt and dont drink or do drugs. It causes alot of pain to people when something happens. I should know it happened to me.

    I loved this poem. I have resently lost one of my own friends, in a car crash. It was an annocent car crash, no drugs or drinking involved, and so it took me by surprise. He ment the world to me, he was my shining star each and everyday. So when I read this poem, I could relate to how this person felt. Its a terrible feeling, that honestly can't be described or put into words, but the author did a good job.
