Poetry Flashback -I can't watch you lose… (2004)

It stains your soul;
Slowly chips the walls away.
I don’t have the answers,
I can’t watch the price you will pay.
You’ll find so many times in life
That when we fight our inner light
The darkness warps the mind
Leaving us wanting more.
You’re tired, your soul feels weak.
Lash out at life. Push away the needs.
Watch it consume your hope,
See the faith just fade away.
Let is go.
You’ll only add to the pain.
Wounds fester until there is
Nothing left to gain
It bleeds through you.
Taints each time you choose.

I don’t have the answers,
But I can’t watch you loose.
Just let me go, let me sigh.
Don’t let me go alone!
You say, ‘please, have mercy,
Don’t leave me to die.’
I know… we should try
To bring this life to a further test.
Yet no longer can I pass by,
Just let me rest.
It passes through you.
Fades each time you choose.

I don’t have the answers,
But I just can’t watch you loose.
