No Letters

3 Dec

If I had words
to line up in a row
I’d take dust and turn it to gold
I’d cover dirt in snow

If I could spell
the way I see the world
the light, the room, the girl
floating over all the empty wasted noise

If I could now
I would now
tell you how my heart is bursting out
to say the things there are no letters for

If I had a mouth like a bell
I’d ring it out so clear
all human kind would hear
the message that swirling round in my head

If I had a pen
with a mind of it’s own
I’d let it free, I’d let it go
and cursive shapes would form
endless beauty would be born

If I could now
I would now
tell you how my heart is bursting out
to say the things there are no letters for

Cause these memories fall short
These ideas hang tall
These feelings are gray
when I try to explain

So I guess I’ll just stay undone

Till the I find the right letters

Over the sun
