The dreams, the pain, the longing, the alone, the fears, the abuse, the love, the forgiveness of the survivor. The beauty, the strength, the memories of ordinary people in our lives. A homeless woman and her friends who abandoned her. A young man who cannot leave his room for fear. A "special" friend who whispers he did not think "special" was a good thing. Poems telling a story of fear, love, hatred, abuse, mental illness, depression, homelessness, the pain of loss, and the beauty of the invisible around us.
