The words, should it not be felt not heard?

The words, should it not be felt not heard?
Does a dog on heat require an explanation?
Does a black hole fear the inevitable?

Do you need me to hold your hand?
Then, will you feel that you're understood?

Or, should you be afraid of the missing heart 
in my chest?

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.
