not because unknown:
few words will stand
to carry all that magnitude
of someone needing one.
not because unvoiced:
these legion feelings
masked as caring, nothing more,
while telling hearts beat on.
not because unseen:
through fourfold eyes enshrining all
as dumb sages intuit
word nor nerve rings requisite.
