pain. chokes everything that i am flowing into streams of disbelief once walking the corridors and laboring the steps up and down building. no more-- people. living breathing loving hating working to become better than the tainted reflection they had come to be-- live no more-- heroes. life saving life loving selfless beings-- people. heroes. waiting. trapped. beyond restrictions of their own mind trapped-- below something much greater than themselves-- pain. in my chest swelling-- heart soft with compassion-- hard with anger-- pumping tears and nails-- simultaneously... the pain. it hurts too deep* sean.
