I have the letters, I just can't find the words.

According to the Oxford dictionary there are 171,476 words in the English language currently in use. You'd think out of 171,476 words, thousands of songs and endless quotes, and whatever else it is that people use nowadays to get the point across; I could find the means to put a simple sentence together.
I hate those days.

The days when the words have no flow. There is no rhythm, no rhyme. Just an endless thought process, jumbled and unable to make any sense of things. I don't understand. Words have always been easy. I've never been at a loss of what to say. And when I can't create my own, there are song lyrics. Chances are your feelings are not unique. Everyone has felt like you at one point or another. There is someone out there who can relate. You just don't know this yet. Or maybe you do. But as soon as I start thinking about this I am at a loss.

The letters are there. I just can't find the words I need. The words I need to make you realize that sometimes things are right there in front of you.

Very deep and very well written!
I feel like this too often in my opinion, whether I wish to comment on something (like this) or just tell someone what i'm thinking I can never get my thought process into the words that would describe them perfectly. It all seems better said in my mind! XD
Anyway,, Great job on this!

Great work! The idea behind the text is interesting since humanity developed language/words in order to communicate and describe events/things/... . But still there are things (such as feelings) which sometimes we are not able to describe through words as mentioned in the text.

(I am not a native speaker so I can't judge the use of language/ style.)

Love it. <3
It reminds me of my boyfriend. When I told him I liked him, all he said was "words". He said he was so happy, he couldn't even think of what he wanted to say. It was so cute c:

But on another note, I find this extremely deep and can totally relate. Wonderful piece! And thank you for giving me something good to read c:
