Failed Rescue ~ Part 1

I could have saved you

A phrase of


if onlys

helplessness in power

I have all this power . . .

but death has more


What am I fighting for?

If I can’t save you

do I even deserve this mask?

A mask of




shame & failed rescue

If only I had more









But none of that matters

in the face of failure.

Only the person to blame does


not the villain

but the Super

who didn’t swoop in to make the catch.



You’re dead


I failed


This mask

this crusade

this symbol

this power

this choice

this life

means nothing.

Because I still couldn’t save you


If I give it up

being a hero

at least I won’t have any other

deaths on my hands,

only the past ones and yours.


I have a responsibility

which is why I have given up,

because I caused your death.


The nameless faces beneath the other falling building

that I could have saved but I was holding up this one.


The screams for help echoing in my ears

as I know they’ll lead to death

while I carry the children out


In my quest for vengeance

for the innocent lives lost,

you fell because of the collateral damage

that I caused, fell on you


I killed you


My recklessness killed you

I could have saved you


I did saved you, but instead my rescue killed you


All my responsibility

All my power

All this death I’ve caused

Shall be no more

I have given up

I have failed for the last time
