Gone

I had it but now it’s gone.

For a very short second,

the idea belonged to me.

It’s soft words were poised

to dance gently on my tongue.

All the eager letters were hanging

on the ends and the reds of my lips.

 

I had the idea but now it’s gone.

Subtle meanings were in my grasp.

But foolishly they ventured too close

to the dark brims of my thoughts,

and all the words and their letters

fell off my absent mind’s edge

and turned forever into the forgotten.
