My World

My eyes are open,

But I do not see

I strain my ears,

But I cannot hear

Love encompasses me,

But I do not feel

I am numb.


Lights are switched on

But it does not penetrate the fog

I throw stones in the water

But I cannot create a lasting ripple

I want to go on an unending voyage

But I end up collecting shells on the shore

I feel cold.


I want you to hold me,

But you are not there

I want to hold on to you,

But you slip through my fingers

I want to kiss you,

But I cannot find your lips in the darkness

I am lost.


You have freed me from my cage,

But I have forgotten to fly.

I want to see beyond you,

But you fill up my horizon.

You want me to move on,

But I have drowned in you.

I will always be there for you.
