Lett ers

Words at best insubstantial

Leave me without meaning

Wandering again through nouns, adjectives and verbs

The concept just more intellectual preening

I’m trapped in the alphabet

Lost in the first sub clause

Feelings hidden by the obscurity of verse

More power betrayed in the ever silent pause

The lack of expression

In even the softest glances

Fleeting touches, perhaps misconstrued

Inarticulate in my desire for you

  1. Trapped in the alphabet. Interesting how at times, I feel the words set me free. My fingers flow unattached to my brain, and the truth revealed is astounding. Then again, trouble falls...grief...and there are no words, no suitable alphabet. I am thus mute.
