Poem: Capturing You

How do you capture a smell or vision in words
I’ve filled so many pages of descriptions of you
Still you remain ephemeral like a sheer curtain
You know it’s there because you can see it dancing
Yet everything still shows through giving it shapes
Of the things beyond instead of it’s true form
As I remember and I’m trying to capture as it escapes
Maybe that’s just you an impression of a person
Emotions that can be felt but not possessed
A puzzle box holding secrets never to be unlocked 
Still I try to lasso you in black lines on white paper
