When All the Right Words Run Away

A Poem By Timothy // 9/23/2007

Lifeless white, a waiting page
Speechless, I find myself
Lacking the wisdom to reach the heights
Lacking the love to touch the heart
Lacking the art to touch the soul
While all the right words run away

Formless, thoughts dance through my mind
Desperate prisoners, tightly shut
Lacking the breath to give them life
Lacking the key to break them free
Lacking the form to give them voice
While all the right words run away

Aimless scribblings, mindless tongues
Futilely dance upon my page
Lacking the grace to make them flow
Lacking the touch to make them feel
Lacking the truth to make them speak
While all the right words run away

Glorious light, only giver of truth
Let my pitiful efforts only die
Lacking the wisdom from your mind
Lacking the feeling from your soul
Lacking the love from your heart
Until they speak what you would say

This is great Timothy! Good job. :D

"Formless, thoughts dance through my mind
Desperate prisoners, tightly shut
Lacking the breath to give them life
Lacking the key to break them free
Lacking the form to give them voice
While all the right words run away"

--that was my favorite verse.

Wow...

This poem is amazing!!! I love it. It is a bit ironic, though. In the poem you are talking about being unable to find the right words, when in reality you are speaking your mind though the poem with the perfect words. I can certainly relate to this poem, so I guess that is why I like it so much. Never stop expressing yourself through writting, you are a wonderful poet. We need more teenagers like you in this world!!!
