Pain, lately.... the truth of something without being able (knowing how) to communicate it... that kind of pain. The pain that gets caught in your throat or stuck to your chest like a magnet, freezing you in place. The pain of disconnect, of knowledge vs. control, or lack-there-of.

The pain of perspective. The pain of compression. Of change. The pain of the sun out of a dark room... of the air out of the water, the pain of fire, the pain of ice. The pain of confusion, dizziness. The pain of being lost. The pain of being found. The pain of finding yourself. The pain of fear of finding yourself.
