Some Words (poem)

Was in some words the couple didn’t know

Some keys to unlock meanings which they felt

Some islands in a world about to melt

Some memories for passion set to grow


They searched their hearts and seasons of their souls

To draw an instant ever dare not change

They glanced how vast and endless feelings range

What could they say to last such lavish tolls


Each second turned to years of endlessness

Each heartbeat sang of hopes in lovers’ eyes

Each silence welcomed warm and longing sighs

Was there some form to all this senselessness


Unclear what form gave meaning to amiss

Was in some words known only to a kiss
