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
