While these memories you did subside,
I did not know that your fear had been opened wide,
and however it is soon that you and I will sit side by side.

Though now you whisper the death of your heart inside,
there is no need to hide,
and you mustn’t get tongue tied.

I know the strength of your pride,
how hard it must have been when you cried,
and I know that you tried.

But in me you can confide,
together we can wash away the blood that’s dried,
and to the very end I shall fight your suicide.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem based upon the problems a close person to me had been experiencing. He had been sexually violated a few years ago and was developing a serious case of depression. And he had recently tried to, and almost exceeded, at committing suicide. And I don’t want to lose him. I’m never going to let him slip into the darkness again. I’m going to be there for him.
