Lost words

Lost
Forever gone
Chewed and swallowed
Scattered and piled
In the dark corners
Of the scary closet
Hidden
With quarter inch albums
Snatches
Of leather an fur
Lost
Are the words
That laid unneeded
Uncared for
Resented
Misunderstood
With the derision
Of the self sanctified
And ever so
Well meaning
The words
Of the child
Growing into her own
Mind
Skin
Dreams
Tossed
And lost
Forever
And those
Who threw those words
To the night wind
Never once cared
