not because unknown:

few words will stand
secure enough

to carry all that magnitude
of someone needing one.

not because unvoiced:

these legion feelings
intimating soundlessly,

masked as caring, nothing more,
while telling hearts beat on.

not because unseen:

eonian devotionals
through fourfold eyes enshrining all

as dumb sages intuit
word nor nerve rings requisite.
