The words I do not have.

He scanned it – staggered –

Dropped the Loop

To Past or Period –

Caught helpless at a sense as if

His Mind were going blind-

Groped up, to see if God was there –

Groped backward at Himself

Caressed a Trigger absently

And wandered out of Life.

-Emily Dickinson, poem 1062
