Word Thief


it floats before her eyes

just out of reach
she's lost the ultimate prize
the gift of speech

she'd push 'gainst any door
if she could hear
the words she's looking for
now blocked by fear

no matter how she tries
no way she'll find
a word that clarifies
what's in her mind

of thoughts which filled her heart
no longer aware
unable to play her part
unable to share
