Caught In A Limbo

Words, lingering at
the edge of the mind,
poised to jump
— eluding my grasp —
into the abyss

I am unsure how
to stop them from
disappearing into the
ether of my soul

Should I pounce
clutch them tight
in my desperate grip
or should I approach
stealthily, snare them
as they hesitate at the tip
of the precipice

Caught in a limbo
the words, and me

Perhaps the muse waits
in nothingness
swallowing inspiration
on a thirsty day
leaving me parched
