My best friend I had a crush on wanted to kill himself. I'd tried to talk him out of it but he wouldn't listen. I wrote this poem when I was scared there was nothing else I could do.

I've given up on you.

You've put up walls I cannot penetrate.

I can't undo what's been done.

Can't change your permanent fate.

You've created a creature

That I cannot fight.

My power is no match

For its terrible might.

You've written this story

I cannot erase.

Forever bound

To this eternal place.

The fighting is done

My war is lost.

A best friend gone

Such a terrible cost.

I've been defeated

So I lay down my arms.

Never again

To battle your charms.

I've given up on you.

I'm sorry I failed you.

The End
