December 13, 2014 The Sunday Whirl / Misunderstand

MISUNDERSTAND

when endeavoring to communicate                              to find the right words

the story seems to spin                   out of my control

it is as if the words have hitched a ride in a                                   spacecraft

and are traveling the cosmos         visiting other planets

without concern for their worldly meanings

angels tread lightly                               to avoid the lunatic words                          without meanings

my words can get into such a tangle                              when they disregard what i am trying to say

finding the right words                       to convey the meaning                 will forever be a difficult task          

words can be slippery                        when it comes to meanings

                      spread misunderstanding

  1. I know this dilemma........some people interpret words through their own skewed perceptions. I so know the feeling of the words hitching a ride to an unknown cosmos, and a whole other language. Based on other peoples' misperceptions. Sigh.
