Borrowed Tongue – 4 Sept. 2015
What’s there to say in a borrowed tongue?
One that thinks, but doesn’t know
One disconnected from
The—ach! So quick it falls way, and so quick that I’m struck dumb!
Like smiling when your lips are numb
Wondering at words, ages ago
One lost, one found—I’ve lost my mind;
One lost, no sound—I’ve lost my soul.
