I am the master of my fate and the captain of my soul.

I hope that your life is better now
that you are not in pain,
and you do not realize the mess you left
and that it was really all in vain.

I wish there was a time machine
to take me back to that day
because maybe I could have prevented this
maybe you would have stayed

I pray every night before I go to sleep
that you are somewhere near
but I'm not sure who I'm praying for
you or me, my dear?

Poem about someone who took her life. i wrote this when I was really angry with her for just leaving me, taking the easy way out of a bad situation. The ending stanza was me praying that at the same time I hope she doesn't see me in pain that she does but also that she is close to me to just be there for me in my heart.
