A poem I thought I lost

I wrote this almost exactly two years ago, and I had forgotten about it. I had forgotten about it because I thought I lost it. I just rediscovered it written (and purposefully hidden) on a middle page of an empty blank book that I recently started using. It's very, very simple.

Sensory perception more alert
A heightened sense of awareness
of where my body is in space
And a keenly felt absence
of hands, lips, and tongue
