break the silence

i thought it was just me...and now
i find myself sitting here
listening to your story
and it's as if i'm looking
in a mirror...watching (hearing!)
my innermost thoughts
come out of your mouth...
my feelings, my fears,
my shame...and all this time
i thought it was just me
thank god one of us had the
courage to break the silence

really powerful - both image and poem.
how often would breaking the silence end the pain?
