To know what it’s like
to see people experiencing something deeply…
Hanging out in recovery groups
emotionally color blind
forced to use the “correct” words
pantomiming the “correct” behavior.
Yet feelings never come to pass.
Knowing the encyclopedia definition of emotions
yet have no idea what any of those emotions actually feel like
wanting to have emotions
but feeling only impulses
primitive responses to immediate needs
Knowing all the words,
but still unable to hear the music.
