This Poem

This is the poem that definitely
didn't write itself.

This is the poem that leaves
words out.

This poem will tell you
it doesn't want to be read, 

but wants you to ask.

This poem wakes up at night
to search for what got lost.

This poem likes to hold hands.

This poem forgets the lyrics to
the song it was singing.

The poem stumbled out of place
before it was rewritten.

This poem will ask you for forgiveness
but can't apologize.

This poem wants to say and do more 
before it ends.


inspired by poet Vona Groarke
