when I see you
when I hear you
when I feel your heart
it kills me
that I cannot
fix you
it kills me
that I am

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    It really is an awful feeling not to be able to ease someone’s pain. The pinnacle of frustration!

  4. In all such cases a hug is a great start! Even virtual hugs can start the healing.

  5. The worst feeling is the feeling of powerlessness 😳to see pain around you and not be able to help or fix it, is torture.
