World Without Me


World without me:
Will missing days still be as brief,
As thoughts used to travel,
From heart to mind,
Before mine unravelled?

World without me:
Will my hours be inaccessible;
Just a single line of type
As in books once burned
For their lop-sided rhymes?

World without me:
Will my stilled heart feel
Then ever as cold, as much alone
As any outcast
When far from home?
