    The last to go.

    Hello?
    The hearing is the last to go.
    Hello?
    I think I知 talking
    But I知 thinking I知 talking
    I知 not talking.
    A crisp packet rustling
    They池e eating
    Watching
    Dining chairs in the bedroom
    Slurping cups of tea. Waiting.
    I think I loved them
    We were close
    But now letting go
    A fly痴 wings too close to my ear
    A distant siren
    The hearing is the last to go
    A whisper in my ear
    選 love you
    Who was that ?
    If I could open lids too heavy
    I could see
    But I hear sniffles
    And a bumble bee
    And day time tv.
    Then the silence of the
    Deepest depth of the sea.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.

    Enjoyed this poem; especially... "Then the silence of the
    Deepest depth of the sea."

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    Good to see a literature site can be spammed to death, there'll still be a Jerrybaldy-pearl floating on the sh*ite… and good to see you didn't delete it :-) loved the rhyme of see/bumble bee/tv/sea, loved the hole poem.
