This poem really affected me because that is where I am right now. I just found out that a friend of mine has been cutting...has been for quite a while and it does hurt. It makes me feel like I wasn't enough, didn't do enough for him. So I definately understand the feelings of pain and disappointment that the speaker talks about here. When I was reading it, I could just hear him talking, here him telling me these things, things that I wish he would say, instead of this awful silence. I just thought that this was a very honest poem and one with a lot of emotion. Great write and thanks.
