sentenced to a living death

Standing next to you
but unable to hear
your pleading voice.

Standing in front of you
but unable to read
your trembling lips.

Standing beside you
but unable to feel
your palid hands.

As empty as you are
I'm left to pretend that
I am standing with you.

 eternal   Your guarded silence is a wall   I sleep blindly at the bottom of a fish tank,   My world is lost unto myself   that i   There are days   The only true measure   solace   sentenced to a living death   sometimes   my love   nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky   windows   With each new birth
