    I cannot watch this happen
    God, I've tried bit I'm lost for words
    You're growing ever closer to this fate
    But I fear you're far beyond my help.

    I watched you change so suddenly
    Like a Catepillar to a Butterfly
    Only the process was in reverse
    And now I fear, I fear you are gone.

    I cannot watch this happen
    The pain I feel is real
    I've seen you battle, I've seen you lose
    To see this, is to see hell.

    My pleas fall on empty ears
    Please, get help is what I beg
    But my words push you further
    'I cant, I wont, I never will'.

    I cannot watch this happen
    I refuse to let it win
    But you've given up, you've let it in
    And now you're just a shadow, a shadow of who I knew.

    Through the pain that I feel
    With the last inch of strength that I can muster
    I beg you once again:
    Please, please get help.

    For I cannot watch this unfold
    I cannot see this happen
    Prevent this path of fate
    Please: Prevent the rainclouds in my heart.

    I like this poem, tho the feelings that brought it into being are very sad. I like how you express your feelings. I wish you good fortune in helping this person.:smile:
