Lost For Words…

Blank thoughts Next time,…. I’ll do it,
I’ll find the right words,
next time will be today
but …………..next time
goes by and the next
then the next,………
now I’ve forgotten 
what I wanted
to say…

  1. Dont you just hate those times when those words are on the tip of your tongue and then the moment is gone.. Or we walk away with other’s words resounding in our ears and we are so dumbfounded its only later we think of a reasonable retaught… Arrrgh I so know those feelings Pen.. xox

    Mots Perdus

    Je me suis perdu pour des mots
    j’en ai perdu mon latin matinal
    que je ne savais plus de quoi
    j’voulais en parler, c’est vraiment pas banal
    je me suis perdu pour des mots
    des mots que je n’avais pas notés à la volée
    sur la feuille toute froissée
    je me suis perdu pour des mots
    ne serait-ce justement que mes maux du jour
    que j’vous écris comme un mauvais troubadour
    je me suis perdu pour des mots….

    Hé miss Pen, et si tu continuais ce petit écrit que j’viens de te mettre pour y faire un duo de nous deux? j’en serais bien content si tu acceptes de m’accompagner
    bisous vers toi

      I am lost for words
      I lost my morning latin
      that I knew more what
      I wanted to talk about it, it is really not trivial
      I am lost for words
      words that I had not noted on the fly
      on any wrinkled sheet
      I am lost for words
      is it just that my ills of the day
      that I write as a bad troubadour
      I am lost for words…

      It’s a lovely accompaniment to my poem, Paul, thank you so much.. We sing in unison… 🙂 … Hope your week-end is going well my friend. xxxx

  10. Pen, me and the phrase ‘next time’ seem to go together like bread and butter. But next time never seems to get here, I mean I get there, but next time is still there with me…

    • I know precisely what you mean Sir Aquatom, ’tis never a next time, just the promise of one which keeps us going… and keeps our brains coming up with rejoinders… A friend of mine used to practise conversation’s in her head, pre meetings etc… trouble is no-one would keep to her script… 🙂 …. xPenx

  13. the words we never spoke
    in times the heart to choke
    to be branded a coward
    yet life steps forward
    silent was he when sent to cross
    for words doth hurt and heal hearts across
    let it fade those forgotten words of past
    let the memories of words that change last

  16. All the time, Pen. This happens to me all the time, now. I’ve just decided that I must not have much of pressing importance to share or the words would be there. I like this.

  18. Aha!!! I know that feeling!! First is when I imagine myself giving really smart answers to people that have irritated me etc…AFTER the time has passed (my brain is a little slow at times..hehe) or when I have these great blog post ideas or just ideas..and I’m too busy being lazy that I don’t act on it..and THEN I forget what it was, even though I remember I had a good idea :/

    • ’tis such a problem, Shree. and it looks like there are a few of us out there who feel the same way. 🙂 I can just imagine us all, talking to ourselves, and getting smart answers ready, and nothing happens. xx
