In pain alone

Apollo_Gentleman_I am Pain

I wish to speak

Yet wordless, turn to stone…

Amongst so many,

In their pain – alone.

A feeble dream

Of unremembered youth

Too soon extinguished…

Specs of captured truth.

  2. This one reminded me a little of an anecdote related by Stephen Fry: you may know it. It concerned a man who was suffering from depression who decided to commit suicide by throwing himself under a bus (could have been a tram). Anyway he only succeeded in completely shattering both of his legs. When asked afterwards about the pain he was suffering (from his terrible injuries) he replied that that was the reason that he had decided to kill himself.
    Take care, Chris
