Poem Contest


Give me your 2-liner poem about stuttering. Surely, yours cannot be worse than mine:
 An eager thought left unspoken
Of a blank mind waiting for it to be spoken.

How about a haiku

Dreaded light vowels
following the letter l
straight into the wall.

I stutter in my demands to be

But it seems, oh woe, no one doth care.

Here is our three lines in Hindi:
Haklao magar pyaar se
Ruko aaraam se
Fir chal pado shaan se!

Translation:
Stutter with love!
Pause comfortably!
then Move on with elan!

It was extremely interesting for me to read this article. Thanks for it. I like such themes and everything connected to them. I would like to read a bit more soon.

My unpredictable speech frustrates me,
I remember it's ok it can't break me.

Tut mir leid, Dein Gedicht verstehe ich gar nicht. Was meinst Du mit "of a blank mind"? "A thought...of a blank mind"? Ich verstehe gewiss, Du behauptest nicht es sei ein Meisterstueck. Doch den Satzbau kapiere ich bloss nicht. Sorry.

Ora, how can you not possibly understand my poem. :-)

An eager thought left unspoken.

(Left unspoken) To a blank mind (when we are in a block) waiting for the thought to be spoken.

My throat constricted, choking, tight
Why is talking always a fight?
