why can't I seem to organize my thoughts?
They bubble inside my brain swelling to my skull,
each one racing to my tongue.
Hot air blows from my lips in a brief exhale,
but no words reach the surface.
I feel everything and then nothing
a strobe light of emotions.
all of this and then silence
I stay waiting for a pause.
For that one candid moment where
I know what I feel and how to say it.
