The Poetry That Goes Unwritten

he says it’s strange -
strange, the way i remember
people’s words more
than i remember
their faces

the way i memorize
fragmented
thoughts quicker
than others can
process them

but the thing is:
i have always found
something so beautiful
in the poetry that goes
unwritten

- all the poems that travel
through synaptic gap
glaciers and streams of
[un]consciousness,
whispered in the
unlikeliest
of moments
to people who
can neither
help nor hurt

this is so beautiful. I loved how you grouped the stanzas. It showed different mini ideas threaded together in the whole poem.

This is a really cool poem! It's thought provoking and it     shows the mystery and beauty you find in these unwritten poems. I sometimes struggle to express particular feelings in poetry so I admire the clarity in yours!
