This post is the latest post of my new poetry series that still doesn’t have a name. It is a series in which I will be sharing poetry from my archives that I have never shared before.

I have had a lot of fun reading through them all and reminiscing and I thought that it might be fun to share them and reminisce with you all!

The poem that I want to share today is called Life Must Go On

Life Must Go On

Day by day I’m filled with regret
My biggest mistake I’ll never forget
Your face haunts my lonely mind
How could I be so foolishly blind
If I could but turn back the time
I’d take them off you and you’d be fine
But I didn’t and now you’ve gone
And without you my life must go on.

I wrote this poem in 2011 after my friend Laura became addicted to drugs and eventually died of an overdose. This poem really reflects my mood after she died.

She was my best friend and at the time I really wished I could’ve done more for her and I really hated myself for not helping her, but actually I did everything I possibly could and so did her family and the rest of her friends.

I couldn’t see that at the time though and it took a lot of talking and a lot of therapy for me to realise it.
