Lost Upon a Word, Lost Upon the Tides
By Fenris Fox (Jeff R.), 7/30/2006
Original Web Release, First Edition (7/30/2006)
We try so hard to find
How to speak from mind to mind
But it always falls far short,
No matter what I write..
Five more letters on a page
Pigment, power upon the wind,
Count the stanzas, lines, or paragraphs;
You'll never know what was lost.
Like those who came before us,
Our gestures are still crude
Our meanings tied in knots,
Betraying an artist's thought..
It's the master of Greek legends;
No tragedy can compare
How did we even fare,
How many even care?
We praise our meek advancements
As if we really matter,
But all that rises, falls
We can never stop the clock..
I can only woo your image;
I cannot touch your fur!
I cannot hear you purr!
So far, but in my mind..
Lost in a future's void
To the smallest of details,
Your path is always scattered
Adrift in your own world..
And you will always haunt me
Till I am just some dust
Till males no longer lust
But in the search for you, I trust..
I will always try to find you,
Somewhere lost within my mind..
