Borrowed Tongue

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.

‘And if I look you in the eyes’ – 17
