And then it was gone

Poems Dec 06, 2009

Staring at a blank page
The words just fail to come
Emptiness stares right back at me

The truth seemed so clear
When I sat down to write
But I can’t find the words

How does clarity turn cloudy
So quickly and so often
True meaning lost in transcription

Thoughts to words
Mind to paper
Essence to vapour

The clarity remembered
The message lost
Everything becomes less clear
