when i look in his eyes i see fear, fight, and focus
when i look in his heart i see laughter, loving life
but when i look outside i see blood, bruises, and bone

when he asks what do i do
then what do i say
idk
when he says make it stop
then what do i think
idk
when i ask do you need help
then he says
idk

he made me cry
he made me smile
he made me wonder
he made me love

seeing his face makes me wonder
will he be okay
idk
talking to him makes me wonder
can i help him
idk

the question i ask over and over hurts most of all
am i the only one who loves him
idk

This poem was inspired when one of my best friends started texting me about suicide, drugs, and his horrible living situation. I had know idea what to do..
