Words - Poem by Cain XXX

words - and their imperfection.
the inadequacy at expressing
the flood of
overwhelming emotions.

words, words and more words!
why can't i find the words? !
the desperate struggle to dredge up
letters and alphabets
to completely capture
the stark blinding red of
and the dull hopeless black of
spiraling depression.

words again. why so many words?
it's just another of my fruitless attempts
to capture to
Perfection - the Imperfection.

    You capture it perfectly. Don't every doubt your ability to do so that so few have. (Report)Reply
