Words Untitled

I have a problem with words.
They often fail me at the most awkward moments,
You know the ones ... like this one.

I often feel as Joyce, disheveled and prostrate over the keyboard,
Distraught at my inability to command them.
Momentary lapse of reason ...

Does no one listen anymore?
Does no one care about images, thoughts, feelings?
I stare blankly at the screen before me ...

Stood up as so many times before,
We must work on our communication skills,
Alas, I fear that this is not working for either of us ...
