I must be going deaf,

for I cannot hear you cry.

And I must be losing dreams,

since my heart began to die.

I must be going blind,

for I cannot see the stars.

And I must be going numb,

for I cannot feel the scars.

I must be seeing everything

that I know is not there.

And I must be losing sanity;

I thought that you would care.

I must be drowning slowly,

for I cannot draw a breath.

Just one regret from all of this:

that I am going deaf.
