Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

Khalil Gibran

i thought i was in pain,
suffering and alone.
i pulled the pain around myself,
a warm blanket of suffering.
i reveled in the pain,
and held it as i cried;
sometimes in silence,
other times with raw despair.
when i opened my eyes
the shell was gone.
i understand.
