can’t talk.

I really wanted to post something today but I trashed everything I wrote. It was just one of those frustrating days when none of the words seemed to come out right. And then I wrote this…


Shy and awkward
In silence by your side
I want to speak
But I am terrified
I am desperate
To speak what’s in my heart
But I’m near you
And my thoughts fall apart
I’m brave and strong
In my dreams every night
I find courage
In my head when I write
I have the words
For every emotion
For love for hate
For hope and devotion
But speaking them
Is difficult for me
I have this love
Dying to be set free
Maybe a note
A hand-written letter
To tell you how
You have made me better
I’ll find a way
Because you need to know
I adore you
You’ve changed my heart and soul



About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    • Haha. You’re funny. Oh… that wasn’t a joke, was it? But… no. (And this reminds me — I really have to finish the ‘how I met their father’ series!) In my head, this is actually a message to a person who inspired me but I’ve never been able to tell him…


  2. This is writer’s block. You’re forcing, but it’ll come. Try new music or something to jump start your mind.

    Like I’ve told before , if this is what you come up with , when you can’t write …;)
    And I feel like it could have been written by me as a 15-year old if I could write – then or now 😉
