Helpless

I sit and watch as the sadness seeps into the face before me Watching with growing desperation as the face slowly crumples like tissue Feel the aching in my heart as the eyes start to redden Seeing the tears well up in the sockets until with a sob they overflow Spilling out onto the cheeks leaving streaks in the dirt As they course down the face of utter despair Washing over the quivering lips from which escapes yet more sobbing Falling like raindrops from the chin to splash upon the floor My hearts aches and breaks And I want to reach out and cuddle and comfort the tortured soul before me Helplessly I find I can offer no solace I turn my back with a heavy heart And walk away from the mirror Kriss Lee ( CLiPiCs ) 27/08/09
