    They never said it would feel like this They never said loneliness will grab hold of your heart Drag you into the sea and refuse to let you up to take a breath A horrible pain that will not end But you cannot die They never said that being alone hurts this much That it makes getting out of b...

    I wake up in a chair. I must have fallen asleep while reading. My face, it's wet. Why is it wet? I must be crying, but why? Suddenly, the nightmares come rushing back. Even in my old age, the horrors of my superhero crime fighting days and The Great Super War bother me. I was once a superhero,...
