whitman escapes me

i wish i could write a poem utilizing symbolism

it escapes me

it escapes me amidst the din

it escapes me amidst the clamor

it escapes me against racing bipolar mind

racing thoughts of self esteem

of crushing sense of sensibility

of world feeling crushed

i wish i could write all these things

i wish i could write like lorca

lorca escapes me

whitman escapes me

neruda escapes me

all i have left is me.
