I heard the sounds first,
they fell on paper and glass like snowflakes dissolving on ground.
Then I saw the notes and within the same sliver of a passing second I could no longer use my ears.
The music appeared as numbers and in colors that I did not recognize!
I counted down and in the sequence they revealed to me,
My eyes flashed with the color changes.
And like a prism refracting,
they spilled out just a fraction at a time.
I was lost in the wonder of it....
Never had I seen what I thought could only be heard.
Never had I received a simpler pleasure than what had befallen me the day I lost my ability to hear you.
The slick and the messy,
the ever present lie beneath the line you'd wrap me up in,
Which I was ever eager to receive!
It was vanquished!
May I never hear again: ever.
As I can see and feel the message through my other senses,
But without your song of distraction deafening out all that
the light had intended me to believe,
I am finally set free!
