When I forget
the hundred thousand things
I want to tell you
or if I can’t get the words
into the conversation before
it runs away from me,
it feels like failure –
like those hundred thousand things
are slipping through my fingers
and will never be real
if I have not shared them with you
which maybe is why, sometimes
I talk just a little too much.
