Never Mine

Written by: Jessica Arteaga

Her memory starts to sing. 
She only says one word, but her mouth repeats and rings. 
And I can't remember how many syllables or the letters made of use, 
just her face and her eyes and her lips; when quirked amused. 
And there she lingers in my head; a word not known but always said. 
She keeps on dancing in my mind, but in her heart, she's never mine...
