Not this

This 
Not this
This overbearing
Sense
Of that thing
You can’t
Quite name
About it
Under a clear blue sky
You are not clear 
Like the transparency
Of the celestial screen

This
Not this

Cloudy
Swirling
Repeat
Repetition of
That
Indelible feeling
Ink of
The impression
Of
5 things you thought you already knew
The article reads
About
This
Not this
Using words
You wish
Weren’t there
You read
You write
Without words
Because
They don’t 
Mean 
Anything 
Anymore
This
Not this
No
The
Unfathomable
Realization
Comes over you
In waves
Phantasmagoric
Air of stark grey
Melancholia
Eyes making
Nights
Then days
Words won’t
Cure
Notes won’t
Sing
This
Not this
Nothing
Can fix
This
Not this
