Poetry: “Difficulties in communication”

Another poem about the fine art of communication.


Difficulties in communication

I struggle to wrap myself
Around your words
Their meaning understood
And resolved in my brain
The intent
That lays behind
Each sentence that you speak
Each word that you
To me on a silver platter
For me to study
And decide if I wish to consume
Then let them melt
Into my digestive tract
Taken up
In my blood
Transported to my brain
Where all might be made clear
Even with language barriers
All torn down
One less obstacle
To consider
I find that I still
Can struggle
To wrap myself around them
Those words
That come out of your mouth
So forgive me
My silence
I’m trying to catch up
