For A Friend - Poem by James Tipp

Empty eyes search her room
Seeking to escape,
Frightened by the loneliness
The empty time with self.

With no desire
No need to eat
To watch the clock
The pain time.

Prayer is empty
Life is empty
Only the needle time exists
This time of fear.

Fear isolates,
Stretches friendships,
Reduces callers
Creates loneliness.

So we seek to help
Crying, shouting, appealing.
Bewildered by your silence
Bowed by the burden

You expect to much.
We, who stand and watch
She whose pain
Crushes all here faith.
