finding him

don't know how to help him
don't know if I can
reaching out useless hands, offering inadequate words
standing by and watching the cut
watching the pain that refuses to be named
he finds release his way
lets it flow out
dancing on danger, flirting with disaster

if I only had magic words
miraculous turns of a phrase
that would heal and mend
to make everything new again.
