So easily,

It comes to everyone else

They have this sense,

This fluid sociality

they flirt,

there is no awkwardness

To them,

its all meaningless

so easy,

words flow

Their thoughts are coherent

borne on the air

flowing through the minds of others

There they fit comfortably

they cause no stiring

and though my deepest need,

is to impact and change

Still I envy

the ease they posses

Everything glances off them

it all has so little meaning

Where Everything shakes me,

Each word lingers in my being

and flowers on my lips,

but it is not always easy

or Beautiful

I am too charged with emotion,

to filled with passions, and words

to posses any eloquence

I am plagued,

by awkwardness


but tactless

What I want to say

Comes out in broken bits

I am left silent

and wordless.
