to live without

September 29, 2011
The blind cannot see colors,
No, they merely hear what they look like.
Never knowing a sunset, nor the ocean's blue.
They could never look up into the sky,
Watching the stars glimmer and shine with a lover.

As such, the deaf cannot hear music.
the will never hear a bird sing,
or the cackling of a fire, or a dear one
whispering into their ear, "I love you"

As the blind cannot see, and the deaf cannot hear,
are we to assume that the heartless can't love?
that they will never see a loved face,
nor hear that soft whisper?

No, the heartless can't love, but only be loved
the deaf can be heard,
and the blind can be seen.
the hardest to live with, though, I wonder which.
