Excerpt from our book “Unleashed”


You beat in my chest
as I give over the rest of my imagination
to fantasies of you…
The truth of your innocence is sure.
I cannot endure the thought that
your person was, in reality,
so pure.
It is a mystery to me…

The way you sang melodiously
with no one being able to match
your harmony…
You are one with the world,
with human and earth’s nature.
It is bliss to hear your voice kiss
the apparatus of ear…

I longed to have you but near enough
for a brush of your skin, your artistry, your ability
to move to the grooves of
magnificent music…
Music that lived in you.

Why could they not but see, merely comprehend the need
you suffered as you
called out for just one friend in this world?
For people to love each other, love themselves?
Why was it so difficult for them?
Just to love with a child’s heart…

My heart aches continually,
breaks when subjected to your music…

All pleas for unity,
crying out, “PLEASE!
hear me…”
