Dysphoria - mourning

Passions from expression prohibited Floods an entire being As arms ache from longing To nurture, to shelter, to embrace What on this bed cannot lie And what in this house cannot live Anymore. In lieu a distant view Suffices to nourish A parched heart's thirst, And dreams of what cannot be Invades unguarded moments, While despondent poisons From the radio spill Infecting from ear to soul; To be human, A sin that cannot be avoided.
