“You Are the Word”

You were the word I searched for,
within the volumes of large dictionaries,
and within the walls that hold them.
And you were a definition,
so not truly the word.
And you were the antonym at times;
but more often you were the defitition
and the antonym.
And sometimes you were the synonyms,
because it was not you, was it,
it was some other word.
And of that word,
you were actually another synonym,
and I kept flipping through the pages
hoping to find a word for you
without another word for you.
And you’ve been the pronounciation,
but I figure you are not anymore,
nor are you part of a modifier,
or a Latin root.
You are a new word, without origin,
without a prefix or etemology.
And you begin a definition
for which there are no synonyms,
so you have become the end.
