The Novel Unwritten

Dr. Mitchell Saskin, NYC Psychotherapist, Upper West Side, NYC, UWS, Counselor, Therapist

The words lay sleeping

upon the page

until a mind

meets familiar symbols

translating through experience

transposing from an unknown author.

Swimming past summers spent

running on roads never traveled

absorbing a meaning

drawn from another’s life

woven by the experiences

common to all.

Putting down the words

life does not end

but multiplies,

molding the new

to old lessons

whose origin

has long been forgotten.

An eternal flame forever shines

it nipping on the edge

of imagination.

Urging our ideas farther

then the sum

of all the words

written by pens

who signed their name


~ Dr. Mitchell Saskin
