What came into my head was unbelievable.
It was the best experience I have ever had in my entire life.
I wanted to tell someone.
Then I tried to tell a good friend and,
I found that it was ‘unspeakable.’
Words simply would not come to my lips.
And to my surprise, I found myself realising that it was also ‘unthinkable.’
No amount of ‘trying to think,’ could be of use.
I simply had to ‘feel.’
And so now that I have come to realise that my experience is;
Unthinkable and unspeakable,
I find myself realising that my experience is also unfortunately, un -inkable.
I cannot write down my experience for you at all.
So alas! I will have to stop writing this passionate poem.
My unbelievable experience has turned out to be;
and un - inkable.
Such is the way -I am learning when - one tries to talk about ‘love.’
