those who mind don\'t matter and those who matter don\'t mind

We met on chat
You said you might kill yourself
And then you logged off
I don’t know anything else

Please feel better
I hope for your sake
That some advice we gave you
You were able to take

“I gotta go. Thanks for the help. Bye”
“I hope you feel better”
And then she was gone for the night
The only time I ever met her

I wish I could talk to her
And know she’s okay
But I probably won’t
Neither tomorrow nor the next day

I wish I could know the end
Or her end… hopefully not that
I hope she was alright
After that one night

I usually don’t cry
But this might make me
I really did try
To make her happy

What if I didn’t do enough
And she committed suicide
That would be rough
And painful inside

I guess I’ll never know
Story’s up to me
I should just make it up
And end it happily

And so it will be
That in my head
She is happy
Much more than she said

I hope she’s okay
I really, truly do
But I will never know
If she came through.

I wrote this immediately after I met the girl online. I have talked to her since I wrote this and she is feeling better now.

Mike, I am not going to give you any writing tips in this comment, because that would make the subject seem fake.  This poem is written not from the mind, but from your heart and what is real in the world.  If cookie girl is still out there, I hope that she sees this and know that you care.

Love, Alix <3

I actually got a little emotional when I read this! I really liked the opening really grabs the reader's attention and makes them become invested in the story of you and the girl I also liked the title because when I first clicked on it, I thought this would actually be about a girl and cookies. But it has such a deeper meaning. Keep writing! (=
