The Words Are Failing

The frustration that comes when
you know words
are failing you is the same
as burning your hand on something
you knew was going to be hot.
You want to cry about the blister on your finger
but you want to yell at yourself for touching it in the first place.
WHY AREN’T THE WORDS WORKING?
You scream that in the shower
but actually you just kind of say it because
you don’t want anyone to
hear and think you’re going crazy
because you probably are anyway
why prolong the process?
But the words aren’t working and
that is capital F frustrating.
You say your words louder
and louder doesn’t make them make
any more sense
because they are still failing you
and failing everyone else and
you don’t want to be crazy
but they are making
you crazy.
