Are you OK?
Like a single stretched note
From a violin's overtaut string,
Your sweet voice is ignored by the world..
All Around you,
As discordant notes spit asynchronous melody,
Your open mouth evokes muffled screams
Plaintive moans heard only by me.
Dear, are you OK?
Are you feeling alone?
Are you hurt by the passage of time?
Are you surrendering our memories?
Are your wounds still not healed?
Are you safe in their hands?
Tell me. I can't breathe.
I can't exist.
Tell me you're OK.
