Leave death alone

leave that razor alone,
death is no solution.
talk to me what ails you
i promise to listen.
i will not be judgmental
i will reason it out.
maybe I will just be silent
while you listen
to your own words.
let sanity prevail,
let life live.
death is so easy,
living is a challenge.
give it a chance,

much is at stake-
that is-your life!

---------------------------------------------------

Right now I feel too raw and bleeding but sanity did prevail on the person concerned.

It was and still is painful. But I think the tide has turned. And all should be ok.

Relief swept over me that suicide did not happen. (Unfortunatley, I can imagine how zapped you must feel.) Take care
