The Only Thing You Can Do is Witness

The only thing you can do is witness
Don’t try to understand why
You brain will melt soon after your heart
As epitomized beauty walks by

Your lungs collapsing is a normal thing
But that little part is just the start
Even the way you get trapped in the labyrinth
is all simply the initiating spark

Fight and flight are both equally obsolete
As reality quakes and your skeleton shakes
Stillness and silence is all you long for
Because the torrent of radiance is more than you can take

Her laugh makes things worse with no better in sight
Every single breath might as well be death
A look in her eyes finally makes you see
How much you are ensnared in her depth

Her swelteringly sweet spirit is quite baffling
You don’t really know how she could exist so
They’ve always said that nobody is perfect
They assuredly couldn’t have met her though

When a moment with her is finished
You feel like a black hole has erased your soul
You finally understand all those stupid love songs
You didn’t realize that you weren’t even whole

There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say
It’s not a personal thing; it’s not even business
Count your blessings when she comes your way
Just remember the burning helplessness is blissfully endless
Because the only thing you can do is witness

The Only Thing You Can Do is Witness
