(A Sea Of) The Unborn

Sometimes I hear him yelping,
the tiny one that never was;
I feel his minute potential orbing
in my head.
 
He is writing me love letters;
they are stacked against everything -
Murmuring his faint heartbeat
that never takes or emerges.
 
I wonder how such solace
could be mine to think of him,
or how he dozes inside such
bleak non-reality.
 
Desperately, I feel him reaching,
waiting for a reaction;
I feel his liquid soul, his blue torment  
pulsing in a sea of the unborn.
