What I'd Done and Lost

I didn't ask for Him to close my eyes
But I was suddenly blind to all
I didn't ask for Him to shut off my nose
But I suddenly lost the ability to smell
I didn't ask for Him to close my taste
But the flavours suddenly escaped me
I was left with my own cruelty and the sounds
The melodious sounds of their heartbroken sobbing
And I couldn't see what I'd done
Smell the flames from the burns I'd caused
Taste the salty tears trickling down my own cheeks
Because their tears were loud enough
I could hear more than I had before
But should I have had to lose everything else?

I should have realized what I was doing before I, too, lost...

The End
