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.
