An individual who has less than the average number of limbs due to circumstances other than a birth defect. Many amputees are victims of war or the aftermath of wars (e.g. landmines). Some are voluntary, believe it or not. There are binary newsgroups dedicated to people with amputation fetishes.

I have heard that people who lose limbs often have odd pain.
Burning from long gone toes
An ache in a foot that was removed
Soreness on cold days in a knee that was removed many years in the past
This might explain why
after 6 months
I still hear your footsteps
in a house
where you left
none of your shoes
