Begin again

The words

Aren't clear,

I don't understand

What's that

You say?

The sounds

Touch my ears

But the meaning

Is never at hand


Time after time

It's the same old story

Line after line

The text rolls on and on


I can't explain

It's like

A dream,

A nightmare recalled

When words

Were things

And I

Could touch but not

Understand them at all


Time after time

The words lose meaning

Line after line

The thoughts begin to blur


You think you're clear

The words

Were chosen

With care in your head

But begin again

For I

Am at a loss

To know what was said
