Failed Words

i hear my words encrypt my thoughts

as deftly as they soon appear

layered attempts to obfuscate

the discourse of my mind’s duress


neatly tucked in wisps of whimsy

affectations strung like beads

set upon a single strand

bearing down with every breath


poring over my life’s learnings

laboriously languishing

in search of vainglorious displays

to shield me from such stark reflection


these notions superficialized

trivialize my truths

for all that i require to say

stripped of grandiloquence

is infinite in its simplicity

and speaks loud as the sun

articulates the ineffable

understood by heart alone


my words have failed me once again

by succeeding to obscure conation

poignancy as parody on parade

in pandered prose most profuse
