A Poem by linear

Just a word I heard

A small insignificant word

Yet an important word

Lost

 

 

In time

In space

From this place

 

I held it close

Perhaps to close

Smothered it

 

A special word, at least to me

A word I had never used

And now never will.

 

It fell to the ground

Exploding

Rupturing

Spreading out in a million broken shards

A beautiful rainbow type word

This word

The word you never heard.

this feels quiet poignant to me as I read it a few times over... a word I had never used and now never will... seems it can mean a few things.. that you can't imagine ever getting it back, you honour what has been lost, you don't believe in the hope of finding it, or you don't want to find it again... maybe it was too special to ever recover..

Yup, is was semantics ha ha being silly.
It's lovely, yet sorrowful. I sense pain, seeping through the lines, and a fresh scar.

It's a word with double meanings, one could be lost as in never found, or one could be lost in love, two sides of the same blade. Stanza 4 has a double negative, never, never, someone told me to never say never, but I wouldn't dream of changing a thing about how this poem reads.
