holding space

i watched
as i could do nothing
except offer her a safe space
to fall apart
to hide from herself
& the world
i watched
& i realized
how far i had come
how far i had carried myself
& i wished
it was possible
to do the same
for her.

i was trying to illustrate how i am feeling. i am not sure it was successful. i wanted so much to help my sister in her mental break, but i’m not sure i did anything more than watch her tread water, barely keeping her head above….
