Dear Poetry + patrons, have you ever had the experience of working through something, and crystallizing your thoughts, and feeling excited about communicating it all, but then finding yourself somehow unable to express those thoughts, despite the clarity in your head? That’s what this short poem is about.

These thoughts
Are so clear
As they swirl around
In my head
I write letters
With everything laid out
Yet the moment
I put pen to paper
It is gone
