Expectator Ion

I am here outside, silently watching
Through the rose-colored window
Of my own creation

I see your pains and sufferings
I watch you battle with your own self
But I can only do so much

The barrier is impenetrable
Restricting me to come close
Disabling my senses

Scared even
To give you my two cents
It might drive you away, again

But why can’t I stop staring
And hoping
That you’ll wipe clean the blurry mist

So I can see the picture
With my very own eyes
Not jaded by yours

But until then
I am reduced to praying
And my muted cheerings

An unwanted expectator ion
Hovering over your elemental core
Always repelled by you
