THE WORDS ARE GONE

Dec 2013 006

I CANNOT WRITE

THE WORDS ARE GONE

A WHISPER ON THE WIND

UNMINDFUL OF THE NEED

THEY FLY AWAY

NOT TO BE RESTRAINED

NO LEASH OR CAGE

OF LOVE OR STEEL

WILL HOLD THE WHISPER IN

JUST OUT OF REACH

JUST OUT OF SIGHT

ALWAYS NEAR SOMEHOW

WHIRLING, WHIRLING

NEVER SETTLING

TEASING, TEASING

NEVER WITHIN REACH.

THE WORDS I KNOW ARE GONE.

WRITER’S BLOCK

 

WORDS THAT WILL NOT COME TO ME

MY BREATH IS SHORT WITH FEAR

IS THIS PERHAPS DENIED TO ME

THE WORDS NO LONGER HERE.

 

WHY I WONDER IS IT SO

I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY

THE PAPER JUST STARES BACK AT ME

TO WORDS I CANNOT STRAY.

 

CLOSED IS MY MIND TO HAND THIS DAY

AND EVERYTHINGS AMISS

BUT SOON I HOPE THIS FOG WITH LIFT

AND GIVE ME BACK THE WORDS I MISS.

 

PERHAPS A SPARK WILL SOON APPEAR

AND BURST UPON THIS PAGE

IF NOT I GUESS MY TIME IS DONE

THE END OF SUCH AN AGE.

 

AND SO GOODBYE I SAY TO YOU

TIS SAID WITH HEAVY HEART

BUT NEVER FEAR I WILL RETURN

I WILL NOT JUST DEPART.
