Pictures In My Mind

I see my thoughts as pictures,
yet try to explain them in words,
limited by a set of rules,
bound and strangled by nouns, adjectives
and verbs.

I feel emotions as intense waves
bombarding my psyche,
and weights upon my soul,
yet try to express them with symbolic
patterns on paper.

I live in a world of abstracts;
feelings; sensations; moods;
unable to say what is in my thoughts
and being,
as words alone are not enough.

    Your poem emphasizes every writer's struggle to transfer mental images to words. In my case, words come readily but oftentimes they don't always match the images in my head. It's frustrating but I do my best Thank you for stopping by. / M
