I can feel the wind in my hair,
the sun on my face,
and I get the feeling that you despised.
the feeling of being alive,
I just guess that you hated it,
since you took it away,
on that fateful day,
and now you can't feel anything anymore,
what for?
you hated the feeling of being alive,
you didn't want to try,
tired of crying,
you took your life.

this is sad... it's interesting to read poetry like this for me because i feel like i could really relate at one point in time (a few months ago).

good job, i liked the contrast beween the narrators and her (is it a her?) friend. i thought this was really good, keep up the good work!
