I WRITE BETTER THAN I SPEAK



Do I make sense when 
I open my mouth 
and tell you things 
a bit too loud? 

Things that are 
supposed to be ordinary 
but in a way I talk about it
sounds so silly. 

I mumble on my words 
but in my brain that’s 
not how it works. 

Constructed phrases 
come out as random verses—
It’s all a mess.

It’s a bit uncoordinated—
my mind and my lips
forgive me when there
are times my words slip. 

It’s best to read 
it on a paper
you’ll probably 
understand me better.

  1. The struggle is definitely real, not only in expressing myself clearly, but also about this topic in itself. Sometimes I feel that written words can’t convey the same emotion or urgency or any of the characteristics that speaking can. But then I remember how much of an awkward speaker I am, and go back to thinking writing is better. 😅
