Songs I Never Sang

There are songs that I never sang ,

words that I never wrote ,

tunes I didn’t compose

even if I’d had the time

I would not have done so ;

Would instead have stared

into some far flung horizon ,

which itself escaped my notice

having only imagined it be there ;

an amorphous boundary

delineating the Nothing from

the nothing else , the nowhere from

that somewhere left undiscovered ,

and knowing that ,

I never said a word about it ,

instead kept quiet

till the illusion faded.
