Shock 'n' Awe

I cannot believe that I said that
That I called you what I did
I wasn't thinking
I wasn't all there
I didn't know you'd hate me
You're not being fair
I didn't know
That you'd go so far
I said what was on my mind
I said what I believed
I didn't know
I didn't think
It wasn't my place to speak
I drove you to the edge
And it was me who pushed you off
My thoughtless words
Cold and cruel
My heartless action
Now I know what I must do
I must attempt to fix what is broken
Repair the damage I have done
If only you were here so that I could.
I'm sorry

The author's comments:
We were talking about suicide in class, my best friend never told me but she was feeling suicidal. I am very against suicide and I mentioned to the class my view and how it made me feel. I called suicidal people selfish and insecure; about how there are always people who are worse off.

I had no clue.
