some words are better left hidden away

bottles lost at sea

there is no perfect way

there is no perfect way to write the cluttered thoughts

there is no perfect way to write the cluttered thoughts that trouble our minds

there is no perfect way to write the cluttered thoughts that trouble our minds day

there is no perfect way to write the cluttered thoughts that trouble our minds day to

there is no perfect way to write the cluttered thoughts that trouble our minds day to day.

we can choose to close them

we can choose to close them within rusty bottles

we can choose to close them within rusty bottles hidden on the back of an old wooden shelf

or

we can express them

we can express them on blank canvases for everyone

we can express them on blank canvases for everyone to see.

it can be difficult

it can be difficult to find the right words

it can be difficult to find the right words to string together

it can be difficult to find the right words to string together to try to help others understand.

maybe some words

maybe some words are perfectly made for paper

should stay hidden on that wooden shelf

should stay hidden on that wooden shelf in bottles that have to be broken to be opened.

it is in the breaking of these bottles;

it is in the breaking of these bottles; in the spilling out of uncertain thoughts

that words become blurry

that words become blurry and misunderstood.

do not break these bottles

do not break these bottles unless

do not break these bottles unless you are willing

do not break these bottles unless you are willing to bleed

do not break these bottles unless you are willing to bleed amongst the sharp edges

do not break these bottles unless you are willing to bleed amongst the sharp edges of the broken pieces.
