Never the Same

Ideas spin and spiral in my mind:

a carousel of music, colour, light,
shimmers with meaning.

Ink is the gaoler,
locking black on white,
confined, stolid, still.

There thoughts shrink
to dry shadows of themselves,
become puny, brittle.

All my complex language
cannot make halos.

After, words are never the same.
