To Ezra, from Liddyuh

Edit
To Ezra, from Liddyuh. This is fiction. 3:24pm
What are you thinking?
are you out of your mind?
I know everything's been difficult
but please, don't die.
I've seen how you've changed
to be honest, you frightened me
but no matter how hard I tried
your gaze skipped over me
I knew what you were thinking
to a certain extent
but I've mostly been guessing
even though I understand
when I heard the door open
I knew it was you
I rushed to the cliff
because I knew
I was nearly too late
you actually jumped
but I barely managed
to stop that fate
but what did you decide
when you heard me speak?
I'm just afraid
that the lapping water
wasn't just the sound of the ocean
but that maybe
you broke your promise
and also broke my heart

This is a good poem, and just to make it clear, this is about someone trying to commit suicide and someone trying to stop him, right?

I think this is definitely one of your better poems...
