"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings; look on my words, ye mighty, and despair.", "I like smashing pots. Then I take the fragments to KernavÄ— and bury them. In future, it will be more past there" by Juozas Erlickas, and so many more..

I can't speak,
my voice is too weak;
shallow whispers and broken sighs,
useless kisses and sad goodbyes.
I can't respond and can't talk back,
my trembling throat a shameful hack.
I'd say to you as you say to me,
I love you so much and I wish you could see;
you are my world and you are my love,
free and beautiful as a flying dove,
but my lungs are trapped,
my body unmapped,
this simple sickness is worse to be,
as this voice has always been useless to me.

The author's comments:
Essentially I'm a bit awkward and bad with words, and I'm sick right now so that I can't talk. It doesn't change much.
