Assume (standard:poetry, 116 words)
Author: SareAdded: Jan 24 2002Views/Reads: 1835/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Sometimes we make the wrong assumptions, letting loneliness take us over.
 



If you open your eyes 

and see only darkness 

do you assume that you 

can no longer see? 

. 

If you strain your ears 

and hear only silence 

do you assume that you 

can no longer hear? 

. 

If you lick your lips 

and taste only nothing 

do you assume that you 

can no longer taste? 

. 

If you extend your arms 

and close on emptiness 

do you assume that there 

is no one there? 

. 

I will tell you this. 

. 

If you open your eyes 

see me 

If you strain your ears 

hear me. 

. 

If you lick your lips 

taste me 

If you hold out your arms 

hold me. 

. 

I am there.
