Until My Soul Departs

Regina Puckett

I pull the words out from my core, and pen them onto paper

But no matter how hard I try to keep them, they turn into vapor

Each word and thought floats away until they’re out of reach

To never return, even though I beg, implore, cry and beseech

So I’ll try to etch each one into the very fibers of my heart

And let them live there forever, until my soul departs
