lost for words (PED #13)

 I want to write but the words won’t come.


I have nothing to say,


Or too much.


Or at least what I have is of too little value,  


Or else too valuable to be put into words, as is the way with all the best of things.


So instead I’m stuck writing about writing about failing to write


And losing myself in inception; the paradoxical juxtaposition of my mind.


So perhaps instead I’ll ponder tasty words,


Find some phrases to be savoured on the tip of the tongue.


It’d appear I’ve begun already with an alliterative twist


So I’ll turn and watch the world burn in a moment


Of kaleidoscopic bliss as


I sit, sigh, watch and swallow mouthfuls of


Delicious ambiguity


All the time just fringing the edges from sound to meaning


Scrapping for coherency and


Struggling for something, anything to say.
