Ineffable - Poem by Damon Harper

I lay these words at her side, a meek offering
Never seen and invisible they stand untouched
Emotionless and brought unto a def ear
From this point its grows into the infinite
Finally reaching that place within, forever its tomb
Ascending into eternity like the days past
Beyond a feeble effort to attain
Lacking proper words to be expressed
Ending as if never existing, then to fade away
