"I'm deaf and it's deafening." he wrote.

it's october - again - so i should have expected it. but somehow i never do. there is always another corner where i didn't sweep.

and while the heart of life marches on so brightly, and while blessings that i never deserved still fall like rain, and while i am set free indeed... those corners no longer haunt, but they still exist.
