Creating perfect lines
With the words
Slipping from my mind
Thoughts never meant
To be confined
Words spiraling together
Like thorns on a vine
Rows consumed by
Thoughts captured in time
Letters and words
Joined by rhyme
On old crinkled paper
The memories bind
Eternally trapped
As they all intertwine
Forever on display
The thoughts of my mind
Free to be read
No longer confined
