Tongue Tied

Why is it that sometimes, I find it easier to type or write what I feel rather than say it?

Maybe it's because I can read, re-read and scrutinise every word and perhaps finally, delete it all! Like many, I'm too often guilty of saying things without realising what it is I'm actually saying.

This lovely little poem by Ali Brown somes it all up nicely;


TONGUE TIED

Words seem to fall out
Through my fingers.

My pen does the talking.

But life would be so much
Easier

If the words came straight out
Of my mouth
Instead.

Tongue tied and twisted,
Just an Earth-bound misfit ...

(Even we chatterboxes can feel the same!)
