Its only now that it no longer rolls off my lips like any other word, it now sticks in my throat like a massive lump of pity. I keep saying it in my head over and over and over, you know sometimes when you say a word, any word, over and over it loses its meaning? Its almost as if I keep saying it in my head then it will lose its meaning and significance, is that...
