Mark Normand


Helpless


So tender a flower, as the wind
blows against her.
The darkness of this world pulls
her down as she cries.
I stand here so helpless while this
day leaves me empty.
As life fades away and death closes
her eyes.

    Simple words sometimes express the deepest feelings so much better than any complex forms. I was moved by the sadness. (Report) Reply
