31-Day Poem: Day Twelve

In a Smothering for Inner Peace

She bears walls of her own.
For that I’m glad,
though behind her smile
rumbles a storm of sad.

I wish to turn away,
I truly do,
but her ache calls to me
in a desperate hue.

I wish to turn away;
this is what must be.
How can I save her
if I can’t save me?
