I Do Not Know You

I am Trying to Grasp the words of My Heart,

But when I find them, They Disappear

Beautiful and Elusive, they slip through My Fingers

Again and Again.

Shouting out to Me,

Love!

Life!

Joy!

Happiness!

I follow their Voices, but when I come Near,

They whisper and Fall Silent.

I am Trying to grasp the Words of my Heart,

But when I find them, they Run Away

Joyous and Clever, they Bound through the Fields of My imagination,

Whispering in My ears

…sorrow….

…death… betrayal…

…hate…

Willing me to Give up My chase, begging Me to turn On those outside.

I am Trying to Grasp the words of My Heart,

I am trying Still and I will Be trying forever, Because

You have the words Of my heart, and I have Not known you,

I Do Not Know You
