Live - Poem by James Grengs

Stop.
Look around you-
Bodies, faces. Nobody.
You are nobody.
They are nobody.
Behind their faces, their eyes,
Pain?
Joy?
How can you know,
If you stay inside your
Carefully built shell?
Live,
Laugh,
Love.
Experience,
Feel.
Hold her close,
Never let go.
Feel her heart
Bleeding into yours.
Know her;
Not her face.
Not her body.
Know her,
And live.
