Sealed under quilted gray
overcast, inner enveloping
surface side, my heart laden
mind troubled for others
needs, their pain as enclosed
in futility, emptiness of hope
cold dull opaque vapor.
I wait for the call to serve
a panic of urgent helplessness
comes with tears, to become
the angel, last resource for
redemption, vicarious solution
to dry the sobbing
restore the smile, a while.
