Suicide is all around us and my heart goes out to those who committed and the ones left behind. I also lost someone dear to me and I was angry but as time went on and I found myself in that situation I understood the pain. You wrote this sad poem with great beauty.

Saffie, I know what an awful topic this is, and so I am genuinely moved by this piece, especially as I believe you actually did lose a friend this way. But it is written very well and does relay the awful consequences such actions have not just for them, but those left, and the affect it can have following.
I don't want to over analyse this piece, but the fifth stanza is so moving - it flows beautifully and the words are full of a forgiveness that you have come to with age and time,
