Aftermath

Poetry

A friend, a daughter, a sister.

She grinned ear to ear until she was alone–her danger zone.

Where she collected beer tabs and hid empty prescription bottles under the bed.

What was spinning in her head? I question.

All I know is that the signs felt like pinches

until they slapped me in the face.

Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention:

  • Ten people will lose their lives today by suicide in Canada.
  • In 2016, there were 3,926 suicides in Canada.
  • Men are three times more likely to die by suicide, although women are three times more likely to try.
