If you take away these cupid bows,
then I shall simply sing with my eyes.
If you take away these polished onyx mirrors,
then I shall glance with my hands.
If you take away these limber fingertips,
then I shall feel with my heart.
If you take away this precious ruby,
then I shall love with my soul.
If you take away my soul,
then you have taken away everything.


The author's comments:
I've always been astonished at how humanity can adapt at the most troubling of times,wheather it is troubling, or challenging. This poem explores the limits of what we all are willing to do.
