no one special

by John Ilotan

I am no one special
just a man
who feels too much
I've lost my sense
of sight and sound
I've lost my sense
of touch

But I can feel your heart beat
I can hear it call to me
it beats upon my broken heart
like rain against the sea

and oh, I long to hold you
just to feel your love again
but I'm adrift
too far from shore
to swim back home again

Well crafted - very nice piece here. The rhyme adds to the overall poignancy of the work. --bf
