A Poem to End All Poems (For Now)

I went to write a poem

Speaking of profound truths

Of life

Of love

Of loss

When suddenly, a revelation

All I would say

All I could say

All I should say

Has been said

There is a finite store

Of knowledge

From which I draw

And now the store is empty


So now I turn

From the world of words

To a new one

In which these truths are


I journey to reality, comrades!

And I hope to have more to say when I return
