you cannot catch me

this black dog

woofing in the night

has its own language

where you see the lips moving

reflected yet distorted

as through a dirty glass wall

where the words

fail to convey

impact or full meaning

& to translate

takes time

effort

that this darkened heart

can no longer afford

to give

& so

you cannot catch me

hold me in my despair

understand this failure

to communicate

hearing only words

as we miss each other

again
