Trying to Say

How many false starts
do I begin?
and how many true
or false words
have I bled?
and typed and typed
and typed again?
only to back track
and by the delete button
erased
all that I’ve just said,
when “too true! too true!”
my heart just bled, “or,
not true enough! the ink’s
not red,”
when what I’m
trying to say,
“but I’m not quite sure
what I should say just yet,”
until all those right words
do find me.
