what to do
when there's nothing
to do

standing around, or sitting with a friend
watching them implode
what can I do?

sit with them
talk to them, listen
try to be there
take a piece of their lonliness away

it feels useless, horridly useless
but it is not, or so the mind says
sometimes it is all that can be done
