On the third or fourth line down, tears began to swell in my eyes. Having lost a very dear friend of mine-my dog- I was actually 'living' your piece as I read through it. 'Children Dance No Longer' might prove to be an interesting title for this piece! I was ABOUT to comment on fixing your spelling, but actually I think it does the writing great justice. It's like the WORDS are broken, too, and like the suffering young man, feel angst. I was able to read the peice quite easily.
