groping in the dark
we cannot slip our skins and put on anothers life, never can we truly know the path of someone else, its only through the heart we can approximate the circumstances of the other through their words, unsaid and said.
you may never realize the burdens of their lives, the love gone by, the monster dwelling daily in their midst, making every sunrise a brand-new living hell and every night a prison these things are not spoken of.
how can one feel deaths inner gnawing, unacquainted as we are with teeth and claws and sucking mouth devouring from within? at best we can commiserate, and hold a hand and pray those that do.
to have loved and lost, perhaps to never want to love again, the fear too strong, the scar too deep, unhealed in the soul. the tears unshed behind that sunburst smile, the secret fear of failure things we may or may not perceive according to our inner sight.
nor can we wear their happinesses, triumphs like a mantle woven gold, we have our own wardrobe be it tattered, be it glorious, be it nothing, nothing at all.
no, in friendship or in love we can only hope to share that which is shared, we cannot force reality, we cannot take the pain nor change what is except by being there, to witness what is shown to care. 2013 RC deWinter
