pain and suffering

I can tell you

the devastating impact.

Life has been deeply altered forever.
Every waking minute is consumed
with worry

and depression.

He walks.
I hide.
He consumes.

Broken
            shattered
in so many ways.

20 minutes of
forever,
incarceration
            violent.
So many dangers.

Break the cycle.
