  • Seeing him like that broke me completely. Hidden voices bombarding his brain and senses, leaving

    only the delusional delay between question and answer along with the upward right tilt of his head

    with sideway glances. Awkward and inverted stares from court officials. I hear his torment, feel each

    agonizing word that cannot be found, wanting to embrace him as only a mother can, with assurance

    that he will one day be himself again. But I cannot. He has banished me from his kingdom and I do

    not have ability to speak.
