Gratitude for Words

Nothing's known about these forms
that we identify

The only light inside our minds is words
to tell us others know

A record of existence
when it's all on this one side

But I'm grateful that the unreal
has a shadow

That I feel the seeming touch of distant things
impossible though they are

I find words for even that in time
as comforting as prayer

Yeah man that shadow takes a lot of words but then it's cool, keeps the mind from being ALWAYS silent.
