the will to name everything

An unknown feeling surfaces

when everything fades- lights and noises from the day

An unknown feeling surfaces

when the busyness of the mind stalls

and the chores run dry

when spirits are anything but high

it arises

from within, unknowing to your own self

without a warning

it has no names

will never have ;

it will be unnamed

and untamed

a deep gorge within

that deepens as days pass

and you will never know what hit you

and yet from the deep gorges of your memories

the unnamed chasm will arise

like a tidal wave

and hit you with the same force it hit you, the first time

when you were unknowing

young and innocent

There may be a name that could be associated with this

but the name has faded and so to the memories

and yet this chasm still remains

on the remains of this body

that still lives everyday

; unknowing

what hit it,

when,

and why.
