Never in bloom. Absence
Stifled and softened. Hope
Hidden shames deepest horde
Muted, wordless

I am just blind without you to see

Reach and effort. Nought
The hole of you
I thirst in your drought
Shiver in your eclipse

I am just deaf without you to hear

There is no route that finds you
no star to light your path
And I have no comfort
No sleep and no warmth

I am dumb without your ear

I am five embraces away
From happiness
Five lifetimes away
From you
