Lost for Words/Words for Loss


The words will cease one summer night:

Just midway through an opening line

A poem stops and calm descends.

They drain my veins these awful words.


The words have worth I never knew.

Their meanings hide in other minds,

They find their ways to pool their tricks,

They carve their tracks through broken hearts.


And I will stare at stars that night,

And see them just as points of light.

And I will feel the wordless dew:

Just notice it and know it’s true.


The words will mourn me in my void:

You’ll find the words despairing there.
