when you don't know what to say

recently a friend of mine confided something to me, and i realised i'm a really awful friend to her.

she had a nightmare, a flashback, and... my first reaction is to hold her. i can't because this revelation took place online.

so i stared at the words, and prayed. Thing is...
She's not me... I can't...

There aren't words to describe how conflicting a person feels when they know what you're going through because they've been there, and they're powerless to help you. I can stand there and say stuff, but the words don't take it away. Words dont rewind time, dont undo actions, dont take pain away.
