"I know how it feels to be completely alone and helpless, and the last thing you want to hear in that situation is, 'It's going to be OK. ' The only thing that seems to really help is that someone else who has felt that low expressing those feelings"

Whirr. Click.
There goes the copy machine.
One copy. Two copies. Three copies. Four copies...
Aren't we all copies?
Nine copies. Ten copies. Eleven...
Of a bigger picture.
Fourteen copies. Fifteen copies...
Does it ever end?
Nineteen. Twenty...
No. Because underneath,
We're all what no one can be.
Twenty-three copies...
And that is-
Twenty-five copies...
Who knows anymore?

I heard the copy machine and the words just flowed. Need I say more?

"You can't help others, if you yourself need help" -my sister ;) love it!

oooh I liked that... because you made it sound like an actual copy machine, it had a really intense rhythm to it.  Almost like the drums in the background of a song.  Great work :)
