Hold On

August 5, 2006

An old pop song: the lyrics rise up
from the silted depths intact.

Just when we think we
know it, the world pulls away.

No wonder we hold on tight
to these strings of words.

    I love this poem and recognize the feeling it so well expresses. And thanks qarrtsiluni for twinning it with my “Incognita” which suits its mood perfectly.

    Yes, an experience I recognise only too clearly. Tied together by old lyrics.

    I love this, Fiona.
