If Only

Wrestling with thoughts in my head.
Grappling, pulling, dragging them out.
Always…doing it the hard way.
Simply to express a feeling.
If only I could touch a thought
and dislocate intent,
things would be much easier
and words would have
their way.
And finally,
you’d know
what I desperately
wanted to say.

  2. I like this one a lot. Thoughts in the head. Feelings in the heart. Not touchable so not manageable. Been wrestling with some myself.
