I Shall Never Know by Mike Williams 02/15/2016 @ 10:15 P.M.

I lost my tongue but for a moment,
It seemed that words had forsaken me.
My thoughts flashed brilliant like a comet,
Then soon vanised into a void of immensity.
As for the reason it did come and go,
Perhaps just as well I shall never know.

I circled round about close to the sun,
In hoping to trace my trail once again.
But gravity pulled my orbit out of its run,
And forgotten so did my thoughts remain.
As for the reason It did pull and throw,
Perhaps just as well I shall never know.

In searching long for that which I lost,
It did not traverse my mind there to return.
And though I iced over in a trail of frost,
My descent too near the atmosphere did burn.
As for the reason it did freeze and glow,
Perhaps just as well I shall never know.
