Pantoum- I Can’t Seem to Remember

Posted by

I have something to say,
I’m not sure what, though.
It was vital to the conversation.
It seems like I can’t remember.

I’m not sure what, though,
That thing I was going to say
It seems like I can’t remember,
because I really can’t

That thing I was going to say
slipped right off my tongue.
Because I really can’t,
I’ll need a bit of help.

Slipped right off my tongue,
trapped now in a void
I’ll need a bit of help
reclaiming my thought from its captor.

Trapped in a void
my thought sits alone.
Reclaiming my thought from my captor
is probably impossible.

I’m not sure what, though
I’ve wasted much of your time.
It seems like I can’t remember,
so I guess I’ll give up trying.
