Love, Time, Life
I cannot describe love, for I get it wrong,
words lose meaning on my twisted tongue
translation lost between heart and mouth
and seem to get lost, was it north or south?
I cannot describe time, for I lose the sense,
days merge into years becoming past tense
years merge into nothing and cannot recall
if I was there once or if I was there at all.
I cannot describe life, for I can’t understand
if I’m here and why when I hang by a strand
that sustains a heartbeat, and I cannot define
in a word what is life without love and time-
