Saving A Life

For all my talk
About mental illnesses
I’ve never really
Dealt with someone
Self destructive
Now, confronted
With someone
Whose only wish is
To stop existing
I’m not sure
How to react
What is the appropriate response
To being told that
Your friend
Wants to plummet
Towards the ground
And feel the concrete
Against her cheek
What do I say
To save
A life?
