This is quite a sensitive piece, I can only imagine the pain left behind when someone close tries to end their life.

This short story is told in the form of a letter from one friend to another in such circumstances.

Listen, before its too late.

Hi, I wrote this for you so that I could say I am sorry. I am sorry if I took too long to find the perfect words to heal your beautiful and tormented soul.

As I sit here and read this to you, I can only hope that you can hear me? I would like you to imagine just for a moment that you are standing alone in front of a mirror. I want you to see what I see.

As I sit here and read this to you, I can only hope that you can hear me? I would like you to imagine just for a moment that you are standing alone in front of a mirror. I want you to see what I see. Please look beyond the dark foggy shadow of a figure.

I recall how I looked into your deep ocean blue eyes, your kind eyes could calm any storm inside me.

I recall how I looked into your deep ocean blue eyes, your kind eyes could calm any storm inside me. But now I realise that beneath the waves of your Iris, there is a deep empty chasm.

I also recall how you seemed to wince every time you tried to smile.

I also recall how you seemed to wince every time you tried to smile. But your smile was always big enough to brighten the dullest of my days.

I want you to look at your stunning body and the way it curves. 

I want you to look at your stunning body and the way it curves.  No, please do not say you are fat, because I know that you will.

I want you to look at your stunning body and the way it curves.  No, please do not say you are fat, because I know that you will. You have hips and a backside that I can only envy and wish for. 

I want you to look at your stunning body and the way it curves.  No, please do not say you are fat, because I know that you will. You have hips and a backside that I can only envy and wish for. You are perfectly feminine.

But, little did I know, underneath all that I see, your beautiful bones were pleading as they were suffocated by your seemingly unmarked porcelain skin, which you covered in so many disgusting lies.

But, little did I know, underneath all that I see, your beautiful bones were pleading as they were suffocated by your seemingly unmarked porcelain skin, which you covered in so many disgusting lies. Why did you tell yourself you were ugly and worthless?

I cry every time I think of how you penetrated and corrupted your wonderful and intelligent mind.

I cry every time I think of how you penetrated and corrupted your wonderful and intelligent mind. You are loved, you are so beautiful inside and outside, and you mean everything to me...

I realise that you chose to dance along with hate as you became deeply involved in that unloving romance.

I realise that you chose to dance along with hate as you became deeply involved in that unloving romance. That deadly beast is now trying to take you. Please do not find it a tempting proposal cause because I know that inside you are screaming and fighting.

If you listen to us and believe us when we tell you how much we adore you, the air will sweep you off your feet and your heartbeat will begin to rise.

Remember, you got lost and I do not love you any less.

Remember, you got lost and I do not love you any less. I can only imagine the sadness of having a thief under your skin who steals happiness and self love from within you.

I now look at you now and you are so vulnerable and peaceful. Your once pure skin is now stained, it shows where the rivers overflowed with your blood as you tried to choke the life out of you.

I now look at you now and you are so vulnerable and peaceful. Your once pure skin is now stained, it shows where the rivers overflowed with your blood as you tried to choke the life out of you. I feel untold guilt because I never realised how much you struggled with your secret dilemma.

Why did you feel that you could not talk to me?  I could have helped you to see how lovely you really are.

I hate the fact that you listened to those horrible thoughts which imitated the hell fire in your dancing shoes.

I hate the fact that you listened to those horrible thoughts which imitated the hell fire in your dancing shoes. It was those thoughts which took you waltzing faster and faster down the wrong path.

And the greatest battle you had ever fought has left it's ghost to stalk the battle scarred fields within your soul.

Please, I just want you to listen to me now.

Please, I just want you to listen to me now. You are a fighter

Please, I just want you to listen to me now. You are a fighter, You can become the cure and the cause of your own pain. You can either win or loose this.

All I can say is that I care about you enough to plead alone with time and death as you lay here on this sterile hospital bed.

All I can say is that I care about you enough to plead alone with time and death as you lay here on this sterile hospital bed. The beeps and hums of this life support machine count down the seconds as they take forever to pass by.

I want you to desperately try and save yourself.

I want you to desperately try and save yourself. As your best friend I urge you please, fight your way towards the happiness and love waiting for you.

I want you to desperately try and save yourself. As your best friend I urge you please, fight your way towards the happiness and love waiting for you. I beg you, please come back to life. I will be with you every step of the way as long as you need me to be.
