Hideaway

One mouth, two feet
One life, a dream
A thought, a word
A whisper unheard
Two knocks, three heads
One light, silent treads
A measure, a call
A hole in the wall
One voice, two hands
One plea, a demand
Four curses, a sigh
A retreat, no sign
One heart, one song
Ten fingers, two palms
A long day, a night
A return to the light
