I Took A Moment Unlearning - Poem by Justin Fitzpatrick

Thoughts enter through the breath
Dance throughout your lungs
Escape in every subtle gasp
Every unknown hum
So from breathen’ loving trace
Tearful, quiet mum
Seeing bright fairies ever grace
Across the lone-full sun

I saw a young couple frolic
In a yard that no one owned
In a field weaved with grassy sand
And marked with jagged stone

High above a bird did fly
Cross’ the morning high
Disappear in an awkward thatch
Listen to a child cry
Little boy a yard away
Tears coming nigh
Assembled in a hole
Craft from a hurtful sky

I took a moment unlearning
So not to grasp what’s to be
For all that I have wish is coming
- I know won’t draw to me
Abandoned like a bird
Like an unknown hum
Listless in the heart
Love destroyed so young
Love destroyed so young
