Nothing To Do


Tied up and bound
No way to be released

Struggling, screaming
Fighting, crying

Can't stop what is happening
You can only watch

Choking against the restraints
Bleeding from the chains

Seeing, hearing
Nothing you can do

Trapped by your limits
Blinded by self hatred

Watch them suffer
You can't help

Watch them die
You can't stop it

Hear their cries
Pain and agony ringing in your ears

Helpless, weak
You can do nothing but watch

Your loved ones die
Right in front of your eyes

Scream you love them,
They can't hear you...

Close your eyes
Cover your ears

You can do nothing
You are helpless, useless

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
