Crumpled Paper

trying several times to draft my thoughts

into a letter or an email

crumpled paper; hitting the delete key

if you stood in front of me

words would catch in my throat

nothing escaping my lips that makes sense

normally I can write manuscripts

or speak publicly with eloquence

what is happening to me?

there is no language adequate

for this heart versus head conflict

deaf, dumb and blind

useless like crumpled paper.
