The sounds of life around me

Seem alien, unknown.

Somehow a bitter destiny

This reality I own.

I cannot feel but deeply,

For there is no other way.

A privilege I pay for steeply,

Holding happiness at bay.

My eyes brim, filled with liquid pain,

No comfort intervening.

I fear my life will be in vain,

Just pain, bereft of meaning.

Omnivorous lover of life with interests from poetry/literature and science to geopolitics, health and art. IFB.
