“How Can I Be A Writer”

How can I be a writer
When I always forget
What aphasia means?

And why do I usually
Forget why I used to
Need to forget it all?

I remember only when
I will myself to give up
My will in this sinful

Renunciation. I remember
Now, as I forget how to be
One who has never been one.

Can I be with you once more,
You who never have been
Who you wanted to be, you

Who were never with me
And never will be again?
Let me be with you. Oh Lord,

I pray, let me be. Oh, God,
As I lie here on this bed, I
Plead, please, let me be.
