"I'm not surprised, it's just kinda suprising." -me

Nothing means nothing
I told you this once
But that was long ago
You probably don't remember
I told you not to get caught up in the dark like me
Because I didn't want you to suffer as I did
I never wanted to lose you
But it's too late for that now
If there was some way I could have saved you
I swear I would have
Because you left much too soon
Though I told you not to let words get to you
You didn't listen to me
I tried to warn you
Words of wisdom mean nothing to you
I couldn't stop that dagger to your heart
I couldn't stop that bullet to your head
But I know you're here with me
I can always feel your breath on my neck
Although it pains me to see your past struggle
So tell me
Tell me
Why did you have to leave so soon?

Hearing about how so many children are commiting suicide on account of being bullied inspired this piece. I was imagining what this would be like to lose a friend and put myself in the place of the one who had their friend die.
