Poem – Floating Words

  Problems understanding spoken sentences (verbal comprehension):

Floating Words

© Truthful Kindness 2018 Dec 11

Words float around and past me.

sometimes they splash against my body.

i hear them spoken.
i understand each word.

I reach for them,
but mostly they just float around me without joining;
without coalescing into concepts that i can grab, hold, and understand.

Sometimes i am able to grab a passing thought and hold it;
finally understanding,
responding to the speaker and building relationship …
… but then it is gone again.

Words float around and past me.

Sometimes i feel alone
… and require visuals or TOUCH.
