Even Though

Even though you didnt pull the trigger,
push them off them bridge,
pull the rope,
or pull the razor across their skin
technically you did

your words caused that
your words caused them to feel like that
like they were worth nothing
like they didnt deserve to live
and then they didnt want to

you pushed them to that limit
your words cut through them
just like that razor did
your words and thoughts
pushed them off the bridge

you say they could've gotten help
but think about that for a sec
would you have wanted to
would you want everyone to know
that you wanted to leave and never come back

I wouldn't want to
and I didn't tell anyone
why would I want to
just so they can talk
like everybody else does

besides when you're pushed to that point
to where you want to leave forever
you don't think you deserve it
you feel like you're not worth
the other persons time


you think to yourself
"how can they do that?"
your words made them do that
they didnt want to
but you made them


Even though you didnt pull the trigger,
push them off them bridge,
pull the rope,
or pull the razor across their skin
technically you did

Lots of voice and meaning I loved it, It was true to the heart at how people act and fell. Would they have helped? Give the time of day?As I said before I loved it.
