Now you've got me!

Now you've got me!

by Elizabeth Challinor

A world moment hurls a hefty thesaurus


It lands wide open on my lap

Turn me into a poem

Make sure the words rhyme and match

And tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth

Dizzy mind drowning in anguished intention

Which words should I choose?

Body sighs, whispers


No words can contain the world

Breathe out

My mind goes beautifully blank

Breathe in

An image sprouts out of nowhere

The moment silently shouts

Now you've got me
