A Name That Tips the Tongue

Poem: May 6, 2005

A name that tips the tongue
but stays withdrawn
has become a part of me
though it cannot stay for long

Within my mind, I find it a comfort
when I awaken in the morning
or go down for my evening slumber

The name, it tips my tongue
and sometimes, within the darkness
it escapes my lips
into the air
as I provide
a stream of tears
