Suicide Angel

a poem by Paula Michelle Puddephatt, UK

they were all there
the signs
neon
pastel
greyscale
signs
I guess they saw them at the time

but maybe she's just attention-seeking
right

they even saw her self-harm wounds
her emotional pain
externalised

and yet none of them
even
realised
or maybe they tried
but it wasn't enough

so she took her own life
and now they analyse
everything
even her Facebook status updates
analyse
everything
every detail
every sign

they see the signs
they panic now

but she's already dead
and the next one
is forming plans
in her head
but nobody is even noticing
yet
