Lost Thought

You had some sort of thought
A few minutes ago
A good thought
But you can’t remember it
And after a while
You still can’t remember

And after even more time
You realize
That thought
Is lost forever

That thought
Whatever it was
Could have been the seed
From which all sorts of wonderful things grew

But because it’s lost
In some vacuum
Of time
Or black hole
Whatever it is…
It’s gone
And that’s that
A potential thought
Spawning potentially great things
Maybe even a potential reality
A new, great reality

But it’s gone
And with it, too
Is that potentially
Great reality

You can’t even sleep
Your mind’s not complete
With that thought lost
You almost feel incomplete

A whole potentially new and great life
