I’ve discovered torment greater than knowing I hurt you; quietly standing by knowing someone else is causing you pain and suffering. When the fault was mine I could at least try to make amends and make things better. When it is someone else I am helpless. B.C.
There are wounds
that never show on the body
that are deeper and more hurtful
than anything that bleeds.
From “Mistral’s Kiss” by Laurell K. Hamilton
