floating w o r d s

by Leah Laiben

the words once there are gone.
the ones that flowed from
lip and mind and heart.

only jumbled letters remain--
and lost syllables,
barely visible to the naked eye.

cling to what is left
grasp with faltering fingers
and lackluster brain

don't let them

run away

Some very nicely caputred regret, if you ask me.
