If only I had time

If only I had time
to write it down,
the words that elude me.

I had them right here,
surrounding, taunting.
Then. . .

For One Single Impression

Powerful use of the word "taunting". And then...
Such a pregnant, dramatic pause!

Great piece!

Oh, I think I know what you mean in the second verse! I have written something in my thoughts, but lose them before they reach the page.

While some may claim this is about writer's block, I like to think of it as my early morning dreams, or words to a love lost.

Yes, words can be so difficult to catch at times, and writing feels as rewarding as fishing barehanded!
