The Words (Written July 8)

The Words


Wanting to remember

The words he’s lost

Asking for the person


That rhymes with life

Wanting to know

Where she’s gone and why


Counting the hours

Trying hard to overcome it

Searching his brain


For what’s no longer there

Saying the name

Hoping to slip


His chain,

Feeling its grip

Grow tighter by the day
