A pause

Because

I’ve forgotten

 

 

What I meant to say

It got tangled

And strangled

And mixed up with

 

 

The heap

Piled in my keep

Of things I want

Don’t want

 

 

To say

I’m getting

In my way

And my tongue

 

 

Trips over feet

I promised

I practiced

But now it’s just

 

 

A mess

I’ve confused

And abused

An opportunity to say

Something

 

 

But now it’s lost.
