Ode To Words I Didn'T Write
I drifted off throughout that night,
My breath held deep in thrall to art
With words I felt but didn't write -
They fled my pen; I couldn't start.
Although I knew what words devised,
In writing what would never be,
As ink did dry, the words revised,
My words! They had forsaken me!
In muted silence did I oath,
(For grammar too eluded me) ,
And wrote some sentence without mouth,
Expressing drivel where dreams should be.
In writing down did words appear,
And basest letters did transcribe -
My soul said more than air could hear;
I never want of you for love,
But love is all I have. I love
Your heart for it, and this heart is,
As one lone heart is: yours to me.
One life, this life, is but my life
To live, and never held to breathe:
Except your breath and that of this:
One thought of all this life I give.
