The blackness surrounds you,
the deep hole your loneliness digs for you.
I stand above and watch, unable to break through
the bubble that engulfs you.
I try to help, to force my way in,
so you'll be able to breathe once again
the fresh air of love.

But you stand and stare glassy eyed,
like a worn-out rag doll, as I fight for you.
I fight the evils of your life,
your anger and your sadness,
but I can't get through.

I scream for you to try harder,
to rid yourself from this awful fate.
I don't understand what your mind says
as you fall deeper and deeper inside yourself.
I can feel your insecurities,
your fear, and your loneliness.
I beg to help, to fight for you,
but you just stand and stare.

Defeated, I sit and wait, for you to come back
from that dreaded place inside your mind.
I weep when you fall,
your burdens too heavy to bear.
All the while you silently stare,
your own desperate cry for love.

Hello, Ashley, and welcome to Passions. Your poem very well describes the way one feels when a friend is hurting...I've felt this way so many times before...your friend is lucky to have someone like you! Best of luck to you both.
