Just a Man
There was madness there, a loss, a disconnect. 
Black eyes flitting about, hovering a few seconds here and there, no commitment to land, no suitable place-
until they found his face.
Jaw clenched and defiant, he met her stare. 
Swollen, red and wet with the salty remnants of pain, those soul shutters said I accept your dare.
Smiling thinly, black bore into brown. 
Harsh whispered words scraping from her mouth-
Take it from me, I can do no more, I must lay this burden down.
Gathering courage with a big inhalation of breath,
He pulls her beloved face to his chest.
She feels the rumble of bass as he begins his explanation again.
I can't fix you, no matter how I ache to- I never can.
I can't take it away, no matter how much I pray.
This is your battle, your fight;
 I'll stand beside you, but darling- I'm just a man.
Just a man, who will do all I can, 
But still- Just a man.

Very well said. I like the build up and the close.

To take someone for what they are and not who they are, requires a quality of courage, ne'er seen these days. Well done, Shawn
