Lost for Words

Lost for words


I’m lost for words

Can’t write or rhyme

I spend my time

Pondering with pen in hand

Trying to understand

What’s going on

Inside my mind


That notion that I had

– When isolation

Became my friend –

That I would write all day

From start to end



The alphabet has left my head

And in the vacuum it left

I feel bereft


I am lost for words
