Senses losing sensibility

As my vision
Bending signs
Melting faces
Into other
I won't recognize
I wipe clean
All my inhibitions
Maybe then
I can see again

As my voice
Sound waves
Into listening
I won't remember
I clear out
All bricks
Maybe then
I can hear again

As my fingers
Scratch and
Search for 
More than empty
Rooms and beds
I won't know again
I look for places
Warm and safe
Then maybe
I can live again

As my mouth 
Tastes sour
Tastes bitter
Words I can't seem
To spit out
I won't hawk up
Them for them
I sound out letters
Maybe then
I can speak again

As my feelings
Melt and break
Stew and cool
Dishes pile up
So high
I won't show any
I hope my heart's
Not broken just yet
Maybe then
I can love again
