Deaf to See

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!
