Going by

The missing takes hold gripping like a noose 

The words choked out of existence 

A blink of thought 

Like trying to catch words of thunder flashing through rolling clouds

Waiting for the deluge of word soaked verse only to watch it. Roll by overhead without a drop nourishing some other poets pen.

Life churns the seas of revelations but the waves won't let me catch a breath for a beat.

Dry pen, parched paper and a world to soak in

inches from the shore

A shipwreck smothered by the sand 

I count the stars instead

An estimate in a glance 

As I Think of the endless possibilities 

And how insignificant I am

That the words that i have captured

Remain the legacy of what there is 

When of words there is nothing to gain

But the release of joy and pain 

Into the universe

and if not written will not remain.

 

Then I am but a blink of ink that mearly left a smudge 

Barely enough to stain.

A blink of ink

Is more than a stain
More than barely
Ink always remains
Like handprints on the window
Or heart strings left to fray
A memory
Indelibly
Inked on every page
A melody
Incredibly
Etched in every phrase
But no, my dear
You need not fear
That blink of ink
You seem to think
Is barely just a stain
It's every hope
And every dream
From far below
To endless seas
In shadow
And in between
That ink you blink
From words down deep
Sent out into the fray
You have to know
Down in your soul
You've set in stone
A piece of you that will always remain
