Speechless Yearning By Helenka Wierzbicki
Speechless Yearning By Helenka Wierzbicki

There Are No Words

The incapacity of language

There are no words,
So I talk around it.
Never getting to the point,
Always wondering what to say,
Anxious in various ways.

But I’m here, for now.
Alive and kicking.
Lashing out, ripe for the picking.
Picked already.
Self-selected, no words, forced to understand.
