Inadequate

This… is what I write when I don’t know what to say. It’s basically haiku, though I took some liberties with the format. My first poem in months….

 

There is so much to say

Not enough words on my tongue

Inadequate

 

Grasping at grandeur

A mole, understanding only

The darkened soil

 

What can this mouth utter?

Nothing, ‘tis true, only dust

Air, and ashes

 

A sparrow, wings broke

Striving for the cruel sun

Only to fall short

 

Words fail the expression

Of the heart, the soul, the mind

Inadequate

  1. Aw… that’s sad. :(

    I would change the second-to-last verse to “Of the heart, soul, and mind.” It reads better. *nod* But that cuts out a syllable, so maybe it’ll wreck something. >.>
