i want to write

i want to write
see words flow across paper
feel the letters form
the need to express
it burns inside
i feel my fingers twitch
the urge to commit phrases
to paper
to explain, to extol
to eulogise
i want to write
but the words won’t flow
they remain, caged up inside
beating against barb-wire fences
in their bid for freedom
tear themselves apart
random letters, fragmented
thoughts ache for release
i need to write
open the pressure valve
set my mind free
break the torment of silence
tell the story of my soul
tears flow like mountain streams
but i have no words
