if
you
were to ask
what
you
mean to me,

i’d probably falter,

for i really
don’t know,
how to put
into words
what words
can’t fathom themselves,

for words call
water
colourless,

and words
describe air
as invisible,

and they both mean life to me,

you
at best in words,

would probably
be 
that one
recurring eternal love,

but only
eternity knows
that the soul
is colourless too,

and invisibles,
beyond that
which about them
is conveniently assumed,
are always ignored
in dictionaries,
for fear of
falling short,

so my faltering
for words,
isn’t
that i don’t know
the answer,
or stillneed
to figure it out,

but ijust don’t
possessthe will,
to diminish
what reallyis,
byputting
what you mean to me,
into meaningless
stereotyped words.
