OctPoWriMo – The Loss of Words

The Loss of Words

A long walk
By your side
Created a sense of peace
Dreaming in
Ethereal words
Flowing from my finger tips
Gave meaning to my world
How was I to know
It wouldn’t last forever
Just because I begged
Keeping thoughts fluid, I
Lie awake for hours
Musing on empty spaces
Nestled between my ears
Oh, how I long to
Play with words again
Quitting is not an option
Regardless of the absence of
Sweet stories
Tumbling from my mind
Unflinching, I labor on
Vibrant air sizzles across
Wavering stillness
Xylophone notes play
Yearning melting from every strain
Zany measures may be required

This installment of OctPoWriMo almost didn’t happen. I’m not one for long poetry, and this one required a full 26 lines because each sentence had to start with the next letter of the alphabet. I don’t know how it all came together, but it actually did. Or, at least, I think it did. I hope it makes as much sense to everyone else as it did to me. Poetry is subjective, after all.
